Microsoft Faces Big Decision In EU Court

This week is the deadline for European Union judge Bo Vesterdorf to decide if a March ruling requiring Microsoft to unbundle Windows Media Player, disclose certain communication protocols, and pay $611 million in fines, will go into effect immediately, or be stayed indefinetly pending appeal. Given past rulings, MS has only a 50% chance of being granted a stay, says BusinessWeek. BW also discusses the possibility MS will lose on Media Player, but get the stay on the comm protocols, since once revealed, they can never be made confidential again.
