Microsoft Says, "Monopolies Aren't Cool, Google!"

And Google says, "I learned it by watching you!" After Amazon weighed in last week on Google's plans to digitize out-of-print books, their allies at Microsoft (it's an Amazon/Sony/Microsoft Axis of Concern for Consumer Rights) submitted a brief accusing Google of monopolistic practices.

Meanwhile, Russia just dropped its antitrust case against Microsoft, and the EU's already nabbed it on the same charges once. And were it not for Thomas Penfield Jackson's big mouth and the Bush Administration's aversion to antitrust enforcement, Microsoft might be two companies right now. (Mega custody dispute: Who would get the Zune?!!) Monopolies: Love 'em if you got 'em, hate 'em if you don't.
