Norway Drops Its Legal Complaints Against Apple
So about a month ago, Apple gave up the ghost, and left its iTunes DRM in the dustbin of early 21st century history.
This makes Norway's anti-DRM complaint against Apple is essentially moot at this point--indeed, Norway announced Wednesday that it had dropped its legal complaints against Apple.
And you know when Bj
Thon and Cupertino battled it out from across the globe for the next two years. Things got so heated at one point that Thon laid the smack down, quipping: "We have received an answer from iTunes, but it was an answer that didn't add anything of substance. We will now continue what we have done so far, prepare to bring the case before the Market Council."
However, the Market Council didn't really do much, and Wednesday, Thon finally told the Agence France Presse: "We have no reason to pursue them anymore." (Seems like he could have said the same thing a month ago.)
