  9. Fresh action in the European Commission's <a
  10. href="http://fsfe.org/activities/ms-vs-eu/ms-vs-eu.en.html">antitrust
  11. proceedings against Microsoft</a>: On May 24, the European Court of
  12. Justice conducts a hearing on Microsoft's appeal against the
  13. fine. FSFE has <a
  14. href="http://fsfe.org/activities/ms-vs-eu/timeline.html">participated
  15. in the case</a> for a decade and will intervene on the Commission's
  16. behalf.

  19. Together with the Samba team, FSFE's legal counsel Carlo Piana and
  20. President Karsten Gerloff will defend the freedom to
  21. interoperate. They will reiterate FSFE's view that protocols and
  22. interoperability information have no intrinsic value, but Microsoft
  23. kept them secret so it could squelch rivals in the work group server
  24. market.
