MSFT -- Should the DOJ Break it up?
An SI Board Since February 1997
Posts SubjectMarks Bans Symbol
144 3 0 MSFT
Emcee:  Kenneth E. De Paul Type:  Unmoderated
Is MSFT anticompeittive? Does it have the same market presence as big oil did in the past? Let's see about getting the DOJ into investigating Msft for antitrust violations. If we look to antitrust cases, like Standard Oil, Saran wrap, etc., a case to break up MSFT certainly could be made.
