  EU Commissioner criticizes iPod-iTunes tie-in
Time: 08:24 EST/13:24 GMT | News Source: Ars Technica | Posted By: Jonathan Tigner

European pressure on Apple to open up its iPod-iTunes ecosystem is growing, as EU Commissioner for Consumer Protection Meglena Kuneva has spoken out against the tie-in between the iPod and Apple's iTunes Store. Speaking on the topic of DRM, Commissioner Kuneva says in comments reported in German-language magazine Focus that she believes consumers shouldn't be locked into the iPod by music they purchase from Apple's iTunes Store.

"Do you find it reasonable that a CD will play in all CD players, but an iTunes song will only play on an iPod?" asked Kuneva. "It doesn't to me. Something must change."

Kuneva also said that the industry needs competitive pricing and uniform sales contracts, in addition to a "cooling-off" period during which consumers could "return" downloaded music. She pla[n]s to discuss these initiatives in Brussels later this week.

Making the world safe for communism . . . er . . . socialism. The, and this laughable, "EU Commissioner for Consumer Protection" Meglomaniac Kunevea has spoken! Hey, I know. If a consumer wants to get "locked in" it is his or her right to do so. The nanny "we don't even have a constitution that any member state will sign" state is in full bloom at the so-called EU.

And the idea of a "cooling off period" would play havoc with both the provider of the music and the music companies and artists that provide it. You can imagine a "cooling off period" of say 30 days. Yeap, I am tired of listening to that song. I am sure glad that there is "cooling off period" Back to Apple it goes! lol
