Microsoft seeks EC compliance delay

Simon Taylor at InfoWorld:

Microsoft has asked for more time to comply with a European Commission antitrust ruling forcing it to ensure full interoperability with its workgroup server software, a Commission spokesman said on Monday.

If the Commission agrees to the company’s request, it would give Microsoft more time to comply with the ruling before the company is fined up to €2 million ($2.43 million) a day.

The Commission, the European Union’s antitrust watchdog, had given the company until Wednesday to comply with its March 2004 decision to require Microsoft to provide documentation allowing its competitors to interoperate with the company’s workgroup server systems.

You may recall that the daily fines were threatened just before Christmas. A decision on the extension will be made by Wednesday.
