Google requests Microsoft antitrust oversight extension

Posted by David Hunter at 3:05 PM ET.

Last week Microsoft promised to make changes in Vista desktop search to placate Google and antitrust regulators, but Google felt they weren’t enough. They now have backed that feeling up with a filing with the court overseeing the US Microsoft antitrust settlement requesting extension of antitrust oversight related to the desktop search question.

Ordinarily, oversight would have expired in November and Google may have a difficult time changing it since they weren’t one of the original plaintiffs in the case. What happened to all the friendly state attorneys general who were plaintiffs and had been threatening to go to bat for Google?

Update: Microsoft files an opposing brief.
