Scandinavian deadline

Consumer-rights protection agencies in Denmark, Norway and Sweden have extended the June 21st deadline for Apple to respond to concerns over iTunes' terms of service. Earlier this month, the consumer agencies in the three countries ruled that Apple's iTunes breaches Scandinavian consumer laws, according to Reuters. "We know our Norwegian colleagues are prepared to take the issue to court and of course if they get a ruling in Norway it will be very interesting for us because our consumer laws are so similar," Marlene Winter at Denmark's National Consumer Agency told Reuters. The agencies have now given Apple until August 1st to respond to claims that its leading music service violates rights guaranteed to consumers under other laws. Apple could be forced to changes its terms of service or close down iTunes in those countries.
