Apple vows to appeal Italian fine for bad warranties

PR person insists company is following Italian law

Apple will appeal a 900,000 fine levied by the Italian government, a PR representative tells The Register. The spokesperson insists that the company is complying with Italian law. Under local regulations, businesses are required to give two years of free warranty support. Apple, though, only provides a one-year warranty by default, requiring buyers to buy an AppleCare package for anything extra.

An unusual aspect of the situation is that Apple rarely comments on such matters. The Register is, moreover, like most publications covering Apple news, often unable to get any response from the company beyond perhaps product announcements or security notices. The website suggests that Apple has either changed its opinion in this case or that the PR person may have violated Apple policies.
