Microsoft published a 40-page document yesterday attempting to rebut the Department of Justice's (DOJ) complaints and accusing it of ignoring evidence that undermines its allegations.
Called 'Setting the Record Straight', the document claims that Microsoft is blameless and the government's allegations, "are groundless".
It argues that consumers benefit from the integration of Windows 98 and that Netscape's business troubles are of its own making. Microsoft denies closing off Netscape's distribution channels; of bullying and bribery; or attempting to persuade Netscape to carve up the browser market.
Equally, it takes issue with accusations that it is a monopolist or that it operates in a monopoly situation.
Separately Microsoft told European journalists that it does not anticipate that the EU will start its own investigations into the DOJ's allegations. Microsoft has said previously that any changes arising from the US antitrust case would be implemented worldwide.
