To be fair Japo this would be because of courts and judges not politicians. Then again I don't know about Europe so maybe the politicians did step in and make a new law out of no where, but I would suspect a court case was brought first. Maybe it was the Netscape vs Microsoft one.

Courts merely enforce laws written and voted by lawmakers, ideally they can't judge one inch short or long of them. Moreover in the case of EU vs. MS I think it was the Comission that judged the case.

You may be thinking about this--where the case was initially brought about by the US "Federal Trade Commission", then later by the Justice Department and some states:

Not that I agree with "anti-trust" laws, to begin with, as old and established as they may be...

I still don't get it... My sense of humor must not be up to standards for this joke. Time for new drivers!
