Well I think that seminars like this are useful, but in case as Microsoft v. Commission the situation is more complexity.
This is because of fact that Microsoft is absolute world monopolist and there is no doubt that EU will never agree with it.
I acknowledge fundamental contribution of Microsoft to IT progress but in my opinion the monopolist is harmful about iconomic growth.
