Legal The European Commission plans to raise the ceiling of future fines on Microsoft to 3 million Euros (USD 3.8 million) a day if the company continues to defy an antitrust decision, a diplomatic source said on Monday. He was speaking as European competition regulators met to discuss the amount of a fine the European Union's executive arm will impose on the software giant for failing to comply with the 2004 decision that it abused its dominant market position.

I don't know about you, but this story is getting extremely boring. Either fine them or not, it's that simple. Seems to me this dog doesn't bite. btw, mark my words - Microsoft won't pay $1 to EU, suddenly they will settle "out of court" if you know what I mean.
