In 2004, after an examination that started in 1998, the European Commission (EC) issued an antitrust judgment against Microsoft Corp., exacting a record fine of 497 million euros ($613 million) and ordering changes of business conduct and packaging of Windows Media Player with Microsoft's Windows working framework. Condenses the EC's decision and Microsoft's reaction to it, puts that administering in the setting of U.S. Government antitrust activity against Microsoft, and portrays Microsoft's endeavors to conform to the decision. Additionally covers Microsoft's allure of the decision, which was heard in an European court in April 2006, and layouts further EC examination of Microsoft. A reworked variant of a before case.
