Abstract

This article, published in 2001, shortly after the D.C. Circuit's decision in the Microsoft case, considers which classes of plaintiffs might have suffered antitrust injury as a result of Microsoft's illegal conduct. We suggest that consumers, computer manufacturers, and competitors, particularly Netscape, would all face significant challenges in proving that they were harmed either by an illegal overcharge or by inefficiently exclusionary conduct.

Keywords: antitrust, Microsoft, monopolization, antitrust injury, damages
