Apple has been hit with a substantial fine over its warranty practices in Italy. BBC News reports that Italy’s antitrust authority handed Apple a €900,000—roughly $1.2 million—fine for the company’s failure to inform customers of their legal right to two years of technical support, instead recognizing only the one-year warranty, such as standard in the U.S. The penalties will be applied to Apple’s three local divisions—Apple Italia, Apple Sales International, and Apple Retail Italia.
