RealNetworks Sues Microsoft For Antitrust Violations

Try, try again. It seems that even if Microsoft can shake the government's antitrust pursuit, they're still getting hit from other angles. The latest is that RealNetworks has filed an antitrust suit against Microsoft, claiming that they're using their operating system monopoly to limit choice on digital media. They're going to ask for somewhere around $1 billion dollars. Microsoft has done an amazing job shaking off every such lawsuit in the past. You wonder if, one day, one of these will stick.

    I am sure this has nothing to do with how rotten the RealPlayer behaves with your system and how close it is to a virus in disguise. Maybe their product sucks, did RealNetworks think of that one?
