Nordic regulators to discuss legal action against Apple

Consumer regulators from Norway, Denmark and Sweden will meet in Iceland this month to discuss possible legal action against Apple if the company doesn’t address their iPod and iTunes concerns. At the meeting, which will be held Aug. 24-25 in Reykjavik, the countries will discuss whether they will file a lawsuit against Apple, and whether they will address the company individually or jointly. In June, consumer agencies in the three countries claimed that Apple is violating contract and copyright laws by making iTunes Music Store downloads only compatible with the iPod. In a reply, Apple defended its restrictions and asserted that it was not willing to change its business model.
