iTunes Declared Illegal in Norway

After filing an initial complaint back in June 2006, the Norwegian Consumer Council has deemed Fairplay (iTunes DRM) illegal in Norway with the possibility of France and Germany following suit. Evidently the Norse people aren't too happy about the fact that Apple's DRM technology restricts files downloaded from the iTunes store from being played only on iPod and not other music players. They feel consumers who have lawfully obtained these files are being negatively affected by these anti-piracy measures. Juicy, riveting legal details in the link below.
