Apple Fires Back at Italian Warranty Police
On Monday, MMi's Phillip Swanson reported that the Italian government has supposedly threatened Apple with another fine - "and possible temporary closure of its operations in Italy" - if Apple doesn’t amend its warranty policy to comply with EU law.
As some of you may recall, Italian antitrust authorities already succeeded at forcing Apple to pay $1.2 million in fines after the iDevice maker lost an appeal in late spring. Earlier this week, Reuters noted that additional fines and other punishments would be levied if Apple does not offer customers a free two-year warranty as demanded by Italian law.
The AGCM said in its monthly bulletin that Apple was continuing to adopt unfair commercial practices in Italy and noted this could eventually lead to the closure of its Italian operations for up to 30 days.
Even though Apple's Italian website still boasts of free two-year warranty coverage (which includes a variety of consumer protection measures), Italian regulators believe the warranty and its level of exposure are inadequate to meet local laws.

And again money doesn't always equal power against government.. Apples 30 billion is nothing compared to the trillions china and America has (even in debt we make over 100x apples earnings in a year). You really need to get a bigger perspective bud.
