Microsoft appeal rejected in Korean antitrust case

The Korea Fair Trade Commission (KFTC) has rejected an appeal by Microsoft to reconsider a multi-million dollar fine and other penalties levied against the software maker earlier this year.

In February this year the KFTC concluded a 21-month investigation into Microsoft’s business practices in South Korea by ordering the company to pay a 33 billion won ($35.2 million) fine and offer two versions of its Windows XP operating system in the country, one without Windows Media Player and Windows Messenger and another that includes links to Web sites offering rival software.

Next step is asking for a stay of the penalties while another appeal is before the Seoul High Court which is expected to take years coming to trial.
