Judge denies Microsoft access to Netscape evidence

A U.S. federal judge has denied Microsoft's request to give it access to research from two Massachusetts professors that allegedly shows that Netscape's problems were self-induced and not caused by Microsoft's anti-competitive practices. The professors, who interviewed present and past Netscape officials for an upcoming book titled "Competing on Internet Time: Lessons From Netscape and its Battle with Microsoft," gathered their information under a Non-Disclosure Agreement (NDA) with Netscape. Microsoft argued that the research would prove invaluable in its defense of the antitrust lawsuit brought against it by the U.S. and 20 states
