The Italian Government Just Slapped Apple With a $1.2 Million Fine (AAPL)

Print comment Post Comments
The Italian Antitrust Authority has fined Apple the equivalent of $1.2 million U.S. for misinforming customers about their right to two years of free tech support, according to the BBC and various other reports.

You can read the full statement from the Italian government right here.

The Authority's complaint accuses Apple of not adequately informing customers that they get two years of free service. EU regulations state that customers should get two years of free service.

In addition to the fine, Apple must clearly inform customers about the free two years of service on its AppleCare protection plans.
