Apple's practice of selling the AppleCare extended warranty stating that it covers the product for ?two more years? again has placed the company in a difficult position in Europe, where local laws automatically extend warranties to two years. A lawsuit has been opened in Belgium that mirrors a case that Apple lost in Italy over the issue. Apple changed its policy in Italy and paid a fine as a result of the decision, but it did not change practices in all European Union countries.
We have covered this topic a lot here on the site and it seems that Apple is not very interested in solving things there. Meanwhile, groups, consumer associations such as Test-Aankoop / Test-Achats, which opened this process (Google Translate) and even government agencies are suing the company. (MacNN)
