    Microsoft to Lobby US Govt.? Part II
    Submitted by J.W. Bizzaro; posted on Thursday, March 07, 2002


    ``Speaking at the 2002 World Congress on Information Technology (WCIT), currently running in Adelaide Australia, Microsoft's chief technical officer Craig Mundie reaffirmed the importance of the protection of intellectual property and copyright within the software industry.

    ```The problem with general public license advocates is that they don't understand that people need the opportunity to commercialize software,' Mundie said, attacking the notion of open-source software.

    ```If there is not commercialization there, a company can only exist based on ancillary manufacturing or services. If commercialization was cut down, investors would not support research and development in the IT sector, less projects would be developed, less taxes paid and the government would have less money to run universities, and all the other things that governments do,' said Mundie.''
