Norway Agency Says It’s Not Satisfied With Concessions Apple Offered

Filed under: — By Aviran Mordo @ 2:52 am

Norway’s consumer agency said Wednesday it was not satisfied with concessions Apple Computer Inc. offered to Scandinavian regulators in response to their claims that the iPod maker is violating contract and copyright laws.

Consumer agencies in Norway, Denmark and Sweden claimed in June that the iPod maker’s product usage restrictions go against Scandinavian laws. They contend that Apple’s system of making its market-leading iPod the only compatible portable player for iTunes downloads is illegal and tramples on consumer rights.

At the time, the Scandinavians said they were considering taking the Cupertino, Calif.-based company to court, possibly seeking an injunction banning iTunes from their markets.

They received a 50-page response from Apple on Tuesday, but the company asked that segments of the transcript be treated as confidential.
