iTunes Terms Of Service Breach Fundamental Consumer Rights In Norway

from the there-are-plenty-more-where-that-came-from dept

torgeir waterhouse writes in to let us know that “The Consumer Council of Norway won support for almost all its complaints regarding iTunes Music Store. This is a great victory for the digital rights of Norwegian consumers, and iTunes have been given until the 21. of June to alter their terms of service for their operation in Norway.” Looking at the specifics, it would appear this isn’t so much an iTunes specific issue, but a standard non-negotiable Terms of Service and End User License Agreement issue. Most of the complaints seem to be ones that could be applied to plenty of non-negotiable clickwrap agreements. In the past, there have been questions raised about the legality of such agreements, and it’s good to see at least one provider being held accountable — but it would be better to look at these agreements as a whole, rather than cherry-picking just a high profile one.
