Microsoft has served subpoenas to Netscape, Novell, Sun, Oracle and IBM as part of its fight against the Department of Justice.
Big Green is hoping to prove that its competitors were conspiring against it, and has reportedly asked for documents relating to various deals between Netscape and the other companies. Microsoft intends to show that these companies are guilty of the same practices which it is being accused of: attempting to limit competition.
Microsoft is trying to defend itself against new accusations that have surfaced in recent weeks. These involve several alleged attempts by Microsoft to intimidate its partners and discourage them from competing in certain markets.
The allegations surfaced in the Department of Justice?s reply to Microsoft?s motion for summary judgement in the antitrust case. Microsoft has objected to the introduction of new evidence. Oral arguments on the motion will be heard on Friday. The antitrust case is scheduled to begin on 23 September.
