Microsoft Raided By Japan's Fair Trade Commission

Check this out ppl

The investigation involves whether Microsoft's licensing of Windows XP software violated the country's anti-monopoly law, said a commission official, who declined to be named. Microsoft Japan spokesman Kazushi Okabe confirmed commission officials were at the office, adding that he didn't know why they were there.

Microsoft shares fell 0.7 percent to $26.70 in New York Stock Exchange composite trading yesterday. The shares rose 5.9 percent last year, compared with a 26 percent increase in the S&P 500 Index, which represents a range of U.S. stocks.
LMAO--------does anyone remember when M$ stock was over $100 a share.......

The company is under investigation by the European Commission, the Brussels-based regulatory arm of the European Union, which accused Microsoft of illegally using Windows to control markets in operating systems for larger computers and for audio-visual software.
Does this sound familiar also........
