Microsoft appeals EU noncompliance fine

Posted by David Hunter at 10:32 AM ET.

As promised back in July, Microsoft is appealing the European Commission’s imposition of an additional fine for noncompliance with their original 2004 judgement against the company:

Software giant Microsoft has filed an appeal against a 280.5 million euro ($356.4 million) fine the European Commission imposed in July, holding it defied a 2004 antitrust ruling. … The appeal was lodged with the Court of First Instance in Luxembourg, the second highest European Union court. …The 280.5 million euro fine was on top of a record fine of 497 million euros the Commission imposed in its landmark antitrust decision against the U.S. software giant in March 2004.

If you’re having a hard time keeping track, Microsoft also appealed the original 2004 decision to the Court of First Instance, but no decision on that is expected until late this year or early next. There’s no forecast on when this latest appeal will be heard.
