The Microsoft DOJ antirust case is far from over since 7 states have not
agreed to the proposed settlement, but more importantly the Tunney Act
[http://www.antitrustupdate.com/Statutes/ClaytonAct/ST-Clayton16.html]
which governs adoption of federal antitrust decisions and settlements
mandates a period of public comment
[http://www.usdoj.gov/atr/foia/divisionmanual/ch2.htm#tunney]. This 60 day
period ends January 28th so if you're interested in commenting you should
do so by following these procedures for submitting comments
[http://www.usdoj.gov/atr/cases/ms-settle.htm#submit] to the DOJ. Please
read the settlement documents before submitting comments and it might be
valuable to post them here for peer review before submitting to the
Antitrust Division [http://www.usdoj.gov/atr/].
