Microsoft starts Annulment Proceedings
ZDNet announced yesterday that Microsoft had commenced annulment proceedings in the Court of First Instance in respect of broad licenses for source code of communications protocols. This appears to be unconnected with the Media Player bundling case of last year, which is also subject to annulment proceedings, or the rather older digital cable matters from 2001. ZDNet expected a response from the Commission today. As soon as I can work out what this case is about I'll let you know.
