Summary:
The Windows creator asserts that it was only found responsible for demanding questionable royalties on one license for code documentation rather than all of them and thus shouldn't have been forced to pay as much as it has. These rates were also allegedly meant to ease access for companies who would need to pay royalties to use technologies themselves. European officials also didn't allow a mutually-approved review process to go through, ignored opinions from patent experts, and denied Microsoft its right to a response before the fine was levied, according to the software developer's legal officials.
