EU hits Microsoft with a deadline

Filed under
Microsoft

The deadline refers to a 2004 judgement, where the Commission found the software firm guilty of abusing its market dominance.

In addition to a 497m euro ($640m; £343m) fine in March 2004, Brussels ordered Microsoft to open up its core software systems to rivals.

Ms Kroes said it was "too early" to say whether the case against Microsoft could be reopened.
