Discussions between Nordic agencies, Apple ‘constructive’

Consumer rights agencies in Sweden, Denmark and Norway said today that they’ve had “good and constructive” talks with Apple over complaints that iTunes copy-protection breaks consumer laws. “We had a good and constructive dialogue with Apple and the desire from the company to reach a solution was great,” said Sweden’s acting consumer ombudsman following the meeting in Oslo. The Nordic agencies said legal and technical issues remained to be solved, but that any change to user agreements would apply only to the future. In June, the agencies publicly claimed that Apple is violating contract and copyright laws by making iTunes Store downloads only compatible with the iPod.
