iT HAD TO HAPPEN: We didn't think Apple could get away long trying to charge more for a download in the UK than in Germany or France - and now the Office of Fair Trading has got involved, referring the pricing structure to the European Commission. Apple's position has been to mutter that CDs are more expensive in the US, which doesn't really explain how they justify refusing UK consumers to purchase their tracks from the German server, and that the "real comparison is to be made with the price of other track downloads in the UK." So, it's okay to rip people off if everyone's doing it? Doesn't that sound oddly like the way a Cartel would work?
