LXer: FSFE to EC: Donít waste an opportunity with a hasty deal

Published at LXer:

At the end of her term, competition Commissioner Neelie Kroes is wrapping up two open cases against Microsoft... FSFE is involved in both. We are concerned that the Commission may end up reversing years of successful antitrust work if Neelie Kroes settles for far too little in order to close a deal, any deal... So far, Microsoft is only offering the interoperability information on what is falsely labeled as "reasonable and non-discriminatory" (RAND) terms. From our perspective, such terms are both unreasonable and discriminatory, because they make it impossible to use the interoperability information in Free Software.
