Scandinavian groups extend Apple’s iTunes deadline

Consumer rights protection agencies in Denmark, Norway and Sweden have extended Apple’s June 21st deadline to respond to concerns over the iTunes terms of service. The company now has until August 1st to address the complaints. “The consumer agencies in the three countries last week wrote to Apple alleging that customers had to relinquish fundamental rights such as the right to freely use legally bought products in order to download music from iTunes,” reports Reuters. “In the letter, the Scandinavian agencies claim Apple’s standard customer contract violated Norwegian law and were clearly unbalanced, disadvantaging the customer.”

RR, you obviously don’t know that AAC is lossy compression (not uncompressed or lossless compression). Next time, make sure you know WTF you’re talking about before posting to avoid such embarassment.
