Commentary: Antitrust needs a makeover
Author: JT Smith
From an opinion at ZDNet: "Antitrust law has seldom protected consumers. At best, it has offered glimmers of consumer protection. For instance, the Justice Department's argument that Microsoft's rivals and, ultimately, consumers would benefit from the ordered breakup is spectacularly unconvincing. Even some of Microsoft's biggest detractors argue that technology will eventually smash the Microsoft monopoly, not the legal system."
