Microsoft has said that it will implement part of its proposed settlement with the US Department of Justice and the nine opposing states while the presiding court decides what to do next.
The software giant said in a statement: "Although the proposed settlement has not been entered by the District Court, Microsoft has agreed to implement certain provisions of the settlement agreement while the court process is pending."
Microsoft is due to highlight its plans and "milestones" for August in a conference call today, and to "discuss the next steps in the consent decree process".
The conference call will be hosted by Brad Smith, senior vice president and general counsel, and Charlie DeJong, director of business development at the Windows Platform Group.
