Europe to investigate high UK iTunes prices

By Derek Sooman on
Consumer organisation Which? has made complaints to the UK Office of Fair Trading about the price Apple's iTunes Music Store is charging its UK customers, which is higher than in the rest of Europe. Apparently, songs are on average something like 20 per cent more expensive to buy in the UK than in the rest of the EU. This opens the door to Apple being eventually fined for anti-competitive practices, since it will doubtlessly find it hard to prove that the increased price in the UK was justified and fair.
