Microsoft may face daily EU fine upto $2.4m

The European Commission has threatened to fine Microsoft up to 2m euros (1.36m; $2.4m) a day until it gives rivals more access to its systems. Brussels said the software giant had failed to supply adequate information about its server programs.

Microsoft has five weeks to provide improved documentation before the daily penalties are imposed. But the group pledged to contest the EU's "unjustified" demands by whatever means possible. BBC NEWS | Business | Microsoft may face daily EU fine
