DOJ doesn't speak for the people

A News.com reader writes that the public marketplace, not the Justice Department, is the final arbiter for deciding which companies, products and services will survive over time.

     

      
    DOJ doesn't speak for the people

    In response to the Jan. 22 article, "Industry says ho-hum to Netscape suit":

    The Netscape lawsuit is just another example of what I, and most readers, would label "sour grapes."

    The U.S. Department of Justice should not be, and is not, the source of relief for these litigants and their continuous and frivolous lawsuits against Microsoft.

    If Netscape and other companies cannot create better products, openly compete, and market them successfully, then they should not be in business. The public marketplace is the final arbiter for deciding which companies, products and services will survive over time.
