* MS violates settlement?

PC Games/Hardware/Microsoft
Groklaw says that Microsoft may have violated their antitrust settlement:

Plaintiffs in the current Iowa antitrust trial against Microsoft told the court yesterday that it is in possession of certain materials, obtained in part in discovery in that case, that they believe is evidence of Microsoft failing to disclose APIs (application programming interfaces) to competitors in violation of the 2002 Final Judgment [PDF] in United States v. Microsoft.

Because there is a protective order in this case, in order to inform the Department of Justice about the evidence, they needed to bring a motion to get the court's permission to let the authorities know about Microsoft?s alleged failure to comply fully. The court granted [PDF] the Plaintiffs' motion, which by my reading gives the Plaintiffs' attorneys and expert witnesses, like Ronald Alepin, the right to inform the Department of Justice that it has certain materials that may be relevant regarding Microsoft non-compliance. If the Department of Justice then requests the information or subpoenas it, they are now free to reveal all such information.
