BRUSSELS, Mar 11 (Xinhua): The European Union (EU) Regulators have issued a fresh warning to Microsoft that the U.S. software giant was still failing to comply with their 2004 anti- trust ruling, local media reported Friday.
The European Commission (EC), the EU's executive body, has
a letter to Microsoft saying that independent observers monitoring the case agreed that the U.S. company was not doing enough to comply with the ruling.
Microsoft is embroiled in a standoff with the commission on whether or not the group is complying with a March 2004 anti- trust decision against it, in which the company was fined a record 497 million euros (590 million U.S. dollars) for abuse of its market position.
Microsoft was also ordered to sell a version of its Windows operating system unbundled from its Media Player software and to divulge information on its operating system needed by manufacturers of rival products.
