Microsoft's appeal to a European Union court over the 2004 anti-trust judgement will receive a decision on 17 September, reports Reuters.

A Reuters report in June said the judge handling the case would deliver his verdict on the day he retired.

Despite Microsoft being obliged to implement the measures outlined in the 2004 judgement while it appeals, the company has failed to do so.

As a result, on top of the original fine, the firm has been fined a for second time for not complying.

A third fine is also possible ahead of the 17 September appeal judgement. The firm has not made its workgroup server protocols available to competitors, which was a condition of the original judgement.
