The DOJ abdicates its ethical responsibility

Author: JT Smith

Advogato.org comments on the Microsoft antitrust settlement. "I believe that it is the responsibility of the Department of Justice, and not Microsoft, to protect the economic interests of the
computer industry by protecting competetion and innovation. The DOJ strongly argued for this position in its suit against
Microsoft, but in its recent settlement it has reversed its position, apparently concluding that what is good for Microsoft is
good for the software industry. If the DOJ truly believes this, then it should appeal the current verdict."
