States Seek To Extend MS Antitrust Decree

Several states in the Microsoft Antitrust litigation have told District Judge Colleen Kollar-Kotelly that they will formally ask that the Microsoft consent decree be extended.  It's set to expire on November 12th.  They say Microsoft is still a monopoly.  Imagine that.

Google recently filed its own amicus brief in the case.  The company received permission from the judge even though she rejected an earlier attempt, saying that Google's interests were adequately handled by the states and the DOJ.  Wired has a report on the latest hearing.
