EU Extends Deadline To Respond To iTunes Concerns
June 5, 2007 at 12:34 PM (PT)
The EUROPEAN COMMISSION has extended to JUNE 20 the deadline for APPLE INC. and major record companies to respond to its antitrust concerns over the pricing of songs on iTUNES, FORBES.com reports. The original deadline was midnight MONDAY (6/4).
Back in APRIL (NET NEWS 4/3), EUROPEAN UNION regulators accused APPLE and several record companies of limiting consumers' choices by forcing them to buy music from the iTUNES online store in their country of residence.
One of the unnamed record companies has reportedly already replied to the Commission.
