Show synopsis The trial between Microsoft and the US Government is the most important anti-trust case in modern history - the case that is putting its defining stamp on the digital age, setting the richest man and company on earth against the most powerful government on earth. This is a thrilling courtroom drama in which Bill Gates and his all-star legal team went down in humiliating defeat - caused partly by his own hubris - and partly by his enemies - Sony, Sun Microsystems, Intel and the other companies who hate the Microsoft monopoly and also want to own the future. The book contains startling revelations about the titanic battles of these corporations and the US government. But more than that, World War 3.0 is also the story of a global information economy that is up for grabs. In a climate of unparalleled frenzy and hype, which has affected everyone, the key players now realise that you are either first or you are a carrion for the birds.
