Court of Justice extended oversee Microsoft

A U.S. federal court on Jan. 29 extended antitrust oversight of Microsoft to the actions of November 12, 2009, reports Reuters.
Supervision was to expire on Nov. 12, 2007, but Microsoft delayed the provision of technical documentation recipients of licenses for its software. The Court, having received the requirements of 10 states to extend the oversight, has been rescheduled for January 31, 2008.

The decision to extend the supervision of two years is a compromise. The plaintiffs demanded to continue oversight until 2012. The judge noted that the postponement until 2009 is not final and supervision may still be extended in the future.
