Norway's consumer agency has responded to Apple's offers of concessions to Scandinavian regulators regarding iTunes, warning that the company "hasn't gone far enough" to meet some criticisms.
The consumer agency claims Apple is violating some contractual and copyright laws in the country through its music service.
Despite this, a chance remains for a negotiated settlement, reports Associated Press (AP). The dispute is part of a growing storm against some of the limitaitons of Apple's service, in particular the way Apple doesn't allow iTunes songs to be played on all music players.
Apple submitted a 50-page response to regulators on Tuesday, though elements of the response have been kept confidential.
AP reports: "Apple said it was 'striving to meet the desires by the Norwegians consumer agency as much as possible'. It said that 'iTunes has prepared and proposes revisions of contracts' Scandinavian customers enter to download music from the internet."
Apple also pointed out that iTunes users can burn a CD of their purchases in order to rip the CD into another music management system that does work with other devices.
The company also proposed meeting with Scandinavian regulators to discuss matters and "probe possibilities for a mutual agreement".
While regulators aren't satisfied, it appears both sides may be able to negotiate a resolution to the dispute.
