Microsoft case: Music feature a violation, says antitrust status report

The U.S. Department of Justice and state prosecutors yesterday told a judge they are "concerned" about a music-buying feature in Microsoft's Windows XP software that may violate the company's 2001 antitrust settlement.Also revealed in the government's filing are concerns that the settlement's centerpiece â forcing Microsoft to share technical details of Windows â may not be working as planned.

The filing is a quarterly status report to U.S. District Judge Colleen Kollar-Kotelly, who is scheduled to meet with the parties in person next week.
