Table: Court Action


As Microsoft races to launch .Net, its grand strategy for redesigning the way the Web works, Sun wants to ensure that the software giant doesn't shut rivals out of potentially lucrative new markets. On Mar. 8, Sun filed suit demanding:

JAVA DISTRIBUTION

Microsoft (MSFT) dropped Sun's Java programming language from Windows XP, a key part of .Net. Without court-ordered inclusion, Sun (SUNW) loses a wedge into Web services.

UNBUNDLING OF WINDOWS

Sun argues Microsoft is using Windows to gain an unfair advantage in Web services. It wants the courts to force Microsoft to remove .Net technologies from Windows.

TECHNICAL DISCLOSURE

Microsoft rivals struggle to compete when they don't have all the technical details about how Windows works. Sun is asking the courts to force broad disclosure.
