"Microsoft has dropped its appeal against an antitrust ruling in South Korea after losing a similar case in Europe last month.

The world’s biggest software group sent a formal request to the Seoul High Court last week to withdraw its appeal of a ruling by the country’s antitrust watchdog requiring Microsoft to unbundle its operating system and pay a Won33bn fine for abusing its dominant market position in Korea. "
