Microsoft starts Annulment Proceedings

ZDNet announced yesterday that Microsoft had commenced annulment proceedings in the Court of First Instance in respect of broad licenses for source code of communications protocols. This appears to be unconnected with the Media Player bundling case of last year, which is also subject to annulment proceedings, or the rather older digital cable matters from 2001. ZDNet expected a response from the Commission today. As soon as I can work out what this case is about I’ll let you know.

About Jane Lambert

I am a barrister specializing in intellectual property, technology, media and entertainment and competition law. I specialize in helping SME (small and medium enterprises) protect and exploit their investment in brands, design, technology and the arts. SME require intellectual property (legal protection for their intellectual assets) at least as much as big business but their limited means restrict the way they can use it. Looking after such clients wisely requires skills and knowledge which have taken me years to learn.
