ABSTRACT
The article reports that District Judge Colleen Kollar-Kotelly has extended the U.S. government's antitrust oversight of Microsoft Corp. for two more years due to delays by Microsoft in filing technical documents to software licensees. Kollar-Kottelly has decided to extend the government's oversight of Microsoft until November 12, 2009, two years after its original expiration date. Ten U.S. states are calling for a five-year extension of the antitrust oversight and accused Microsoft of continuing monopolistic behavior.
