145. Government stopped enforcing Sherman Act violations (except for political enemies & extortion)

 

under reagan. Ma Bell was the last monopoly to suffer prosecution and remedy from the government and that was longer ago than half of us have been alive.

Since then it has only been used to extract some blackmail from time to time such as when M$ stole Netscape's $2B market and paid off the government with a $70M gratuity.
