Apple, Inc Fined 900,000 Euros for Lack of Clarity in AppleCare Sales

Apple Inc’s Italian division has been fined 900,000 Euros (1.2 Million USD) for failing to comply with Italian statutes regarding warranties on their products.  Italian law requires manufacturers to provide a minimum of two years warranty on electronic products, yet Apple was only providing one year.   They also were having customers sign contracts for the two year extension on the warranty, when only one year extension should have been required.

The Italian Antitrust Authority has specified that Apple must notify customers on their website of the details of the judgement as well as information concerning their Italy specific two year warranty on Apple products.
