Microsoft’s Daniel Rosen’s direct testimony, which was released yesterday at the antitrust trial in Washington, charges Netscape with distorting the nature of its relationship with Microsoft Corp over the 1994-95 period and making false statements about Microsoft withholding technological assistance. The general manager of new technology claims that Netscape actively encouraged a relationship between the two companies and that Netscape even suggested Microsoft might take an equity stake in the company. Rosen claims that Microsoft went out of its way to forge a win-win relationship with Netscape. To this end, he says that Microsoft never withheld technical assistance from Netscape throughout 1995. He says that such claims highlight Netscape’s technical failings rather than anti-competitive behavior on Microsoft’s part. Most importantly, Rosen’s recollection of the infamous June 21 1995 market split meeting is that it was, nothing more than a detailed and wide-ranging technology discussion. Rosen is expected to take the stand tomorrow.
