Time is running out for the public
to offer comments about the pending settlement between the United States Government, several individual states and Microsoft Corp. In November, the U.S. and Microsoft tentatively agreed to a revised Final Judgement proposal to resolve the government’s civil antitrust case against the software giant.
According to the Tunney Act, the U.S. is required to accept comments from the public following its decision to settle a civil antitrust suit, and that time is now drawing to a close. January 28, 2002 marks the last day that the public can comment on the record regarding the case.
E-mail, fax, or regular mail are all accepted, but the U.S. Department of Justice would prefer for interested parties to use either e-mail or fax, given “recent mail delivery interruptions” in the Washington, DC area. Here are the details:
E-mail can be sent to
email@example.com. Put “Microsoft Settlement” in the Subject line of your e-mail.
You may also fax your comments to either 202.307.1454 or 202.616.9937.
Mail should be addressed to:
