The consumer protection groups in Norway, Sweden and Denmark said Wednesday they will give Apple until Aug. 1 to reply to their claims that the iTunes music store and service operates in violation of Scandinavian law according to a report from MarketWatch.
Last week, the groups said they believed Apple’s iTunes violates Scandinavian consumers’ rights by making Apple’s iPods the only portable devices that can play songs downloaded from iTunes. The consumer groups had originally set a June 21 deadline for Apple to respond to the claims.
