The fact that the government and Microsoft Corporation came to an agreement after several unsuccessful efforts to do so in the past implies that the planned settlement was not a win for the government or Microsoft; but a central ground reflecting the facts of the case, the court verdicts, and an acknowledgement that sustained litigation, was a venture for both sides (Lohr& Brinkley, 2001)....   [tags: Case Study, solution]
