The past year has seen Microsoft make headlines across the country, and not just for its new and innovative products. The software giant has found itself the target of an antitrust case by the Department of Justice in conjunction with a number of state attorneys general. The government claims that Microsoft is acting anti-competitively by using its operating system, Windows, as leverage to dominate the market for Internet browsers. However, the government case ignores the fact that computer prices are plummeting and innovation is booming. Consumers can now educate themselves, shop, and even plan their next vacation through their computers. In a situation where prices are falling and consumer benefits are increasing, what is Microsoft's crime? After assessing the dynamics of the marketplace, South Carolina's attorney general, Charlie Condon, dropped out of the case against Microsoft stating, "Innovation should be left to entrepreneurs, not to government bureaucrats or to the courts." Indeed, it is hard to find the benefit to consumers of giving the people who brought us snail mail responsibility over the information superhighway.
