Overview

In this edition of Justice Talking, we’ll look at antitrust laws and the computer industry. The US government charges that Microsoft is a monopoly that will continue to snuff out competition by rivals unless the company is broken up and placed under some serious restrictions. Microsoft counters that it represents the American ideal of an aggressive and successful business built on little more than a good idea. What does the Microsoft litigation mean for the technological innovation, the economy, and computer users worldwide?
