EC fines Microsoft 280.5 million Euros

The European Commission has fined Microsoft 280.5 million for failing to comply with the terms of a March 2004 antiitrust judgement against it.

Microsoft has already paid a 497 million fine as a result of the judgement, in which the Commission found that Microsoft had used its near-monopoly in the PC operating systems market to gain advantage in the markets for work group server operating systems and media players. - EC fines Microsoft 280.5 million
