Microsoft Apologists

from the hmmm... dept

It’s not hard to look at the propose Microsoft settlement that the Justice Department agreed to and realize that it’s mostly a slap on the wrist. Most of the articles on the topic have pointed out how easily Microsoft is getting off. Here’s one of the few articles I’ve read that suggests that the original settlement is fair, and the states that are pushing for a new settlement are going way too far. While the states may be pushing for too much, this article does little to explain why. He basically states what the settlement would require Microsoft to do and then says “isn’t that crazy?!?!” instead of clearly explaining why that would lead to a bad result. I hope Microsoft gets better lawyers to defend themselves.
