        "On 1 March 2007 the Commission, by means of a Statement of
        Objections, warned Microsoft of further penalties (of up to €3
        milion per day) over its unreasonable pricing of the
        interoperability information (IP/07/269). Microsoft replied to
        the Statement of Objections on 23 April 2007. The Commission is
        currently assessing the reasonableness of Microsoft remuneration
        schemes for the interoperability information."


IP/07/289 is worded very hopefully, but I wouldn't expect the useful
docs to be usable.
