EU extends Apple deadline

The European Commission has extended its deadline for Apple to respond to antitrust concerns over the iTunes Store, which center around restrictions that bar iTunes customers from purchasing tracks offered to countries other than the one they are connecting from. Thosee restrictions result in price differentials between intra-eurozone and extra-eurozone, which equate to more costly tracks for some European iTunes customers compared to other nearby countries. The original deadline -- with which Apple failed to comply -- set by the EU was midnight on June 4th, but today that deadline was pushed back to June 20th, according to Thomson Financial. Apple in early April denied that it violated European Union laws regarding the pricing of songs on its iTunes Store, saying that the company would continue to work with the EU to resolve the matter.
