AOL Time Warner Inc. scored a $750 million settlement from Microsoft Corp. as
a result of an antitrust complaint AOL's Netscape Communications Corp. unit had
filed.

The settlement gives AOL Time Warner a license agreement to use Microsoft's
entire "Windows Media 9 Series" digital-media platform.

But Microsoft spokesman Jim Desler said the deal contains no agreement for
Time Warner Cable to distribute the "Microsoft TV" platform.
