Microsoft recently made a proposal to the European Commission to address competition law concerns that the Commission has raised with regard to Internet Explorer and the interoperability of certain Microsoft products. The Commission issued a statement concerning the proposal today, and we subsequently issued a statement from General Counsel Brad Smith.

    In what way can a company make a "proposal" to a public authority? That is a deterioriation of the public authority because the authority does enforce the law and decides, it does not negotiate the law (as maybe be common in the US, not in Europe).     Annex B is a provocation. The European Parliament does not accept software patentability. Furthermore patents for web standards and internet gateway technology are totally unacceptable.
