Court rules in MS favor

Compensation claims filed by South Korean software companies Digito.com and Sanview Technology against Microsoft have been rejected by the Seoul District Court on Thursday, the AP reports. Digito sought the equivalent of $23.9 million in damages, while Sanview wanted nearly $8 million. The claims stated Microsoft negatively affected the companies' sales by bundling its instant messenger and Windows Media Services programs with its operating system, though the court denied them based on a lack of proof. It did however, recognize that Microsoft violated South Korea's fair trade rules.
