Apple resolving iTunes charges
Apple is to announce steps to resolve European Commission charges that its iTunes stores break EU pricing regulations.
The case dates back to 2005, when the British consumer association Which? complained that iTunes stores in France and Germany charged E99 cents ($1.45), while Britons must pay £79 pence ($1.56), instead of letting all Europeans buy at one store.
The EC agreed, and in April 2007 charged Apple with breaching EU rules by curtailing cross-border access to iTunes.
Neither party had any comment, though the competition regulator is likely to close the long-running case once Apple makes its announcement.
