Ten years have passed since the U.S. Department of Justice and 20
states filed their landmark antitrust case against Microsoft and the
trial of the lawsuit began in federal district court in Washington,
D.C. This major conference, United States v. Microsoft: 10 Years
Later, looked back over the last ten years and explored the lasting
lessons and deeper meanings of the case for Microsoft, for the software
and technology industries, and for antitrust law and enforcement.
United States v. Microsoft: 10 Years Later, was held Friday and
Saturday, September 12-13, 2008, in Austin Hall at Harvard Law School.
Sponsored by the Law School’s Cyberlaw Clinic and the Berkman Center
for Internet & Society, this conference was the first retrospective
to examine the lawsuit and its aftermath from the perspective of many
of the participants in the original case and trial.
