Apple faces potential suspension of sales in Italy
Apple is in hot water in Italy over its warranty policy, which does not comply with Italian law. Apple products come with a free one-year warranty that can be extended with the purchase of an AppleCare warranty. Under Italian law, the company is obligated to provide two years of free warranty service. The country's AGCM competition and market authority has warned Apple about its non-compliance and fined the company 900,000 Euros for pushing its paid service and failing to disclose the free technical assistance. Apple appealed the fine, but lost in court earlier this year, says Reuters.
Despite the ruling and the fine, Apple has not changed its policy. As a result, the AGCM has threatened to close Apple's operations in the country for 30 days and levy another fine (300,000 Euros). Apple has 30 days to respond.
