Dreamer asked What is the difference between being the standard of an industry (which keeps competitors at bay) which a gorilla should be, and unfair monopoly practices?

I think it has something to do with trying to also be the "standard" in someone else's industry, like taking browser market from Netscape, or trying to take JAVA script from Sun Micro, or speech/voice reconition from new partner LHSP,OR

like my recent 3 hours on the phone with MSFT tech reps to get MSN removed from my computer so it wouldn't try to be the default connection to the Internet, even though I have a cable internet connection.;)
