Wednesday, December 22, 2004 - EU Court Upholds Ruling on Microsoft - EU Court Upholds Ruling on Microsoft: "A European Union court ruled Wednesday that Microsoft Corp. will have to abide immediately by an EU ruling that forces the software giant to change its commercial practices before the appeals procedure runs its full course.
The ruling of the Luxembourg-based European Court of First Instance has huge implications for the company, since it forces Microsoft to divulge some trade secrets and produce a version of Windows without its digital Media Player.
The court ruled that delaying the execution of the EU ruling wouldn't cause Microsoft irreparable damage.
'Microsoft's application for interim measures is therefore dismissed in its entirety,' a court statement said."

A happy day for RealNetworks...
