Microsoft to pay $750 million in AOL settlement
5/29/2003 4:23:44 PM
SEATTLE, May 29 (Reuters) - Microsoft Corp. (MSFT) and AOL Time Warner Inc. said on Thursday they had agreed to settle the media company's antitrust lawsuit against the software giant.
Redmond, Washington-based Microsoft will pay $750 million to AOL Time Warner, the companies said in a statement.
The agreement includes a new royalty-free, seven-year license of Microsoft's browsing technology to AOL, and the companies said they will jointly develop and support steps for deploying digital media such as music and video over the Internet.
I am sorry but in my opinion good riddance. With browsers like Opera who needs Netscape?
The reason I laugh is that is AOL is failing (albeit slowly) and it is looking like they will be sold by Time Warner. How many times has AOL sued MS and won, 10, 15 times? It's nothing new. Both of the companies are doomed, just on different time lines, IMHO..
