Denmark, Norway and Sweden put pressure on Apple's iTunes

STOCKHOLM (AFP) - Denmark, Norway and Sweden plan to force Apple Computers Inc to break the exclusive link between its iPod music players and online iTunes store.

The three Scandinavian countries have decided to take iTunes to their respective government mediators, or ombudsmen.

"iTunes' terms and conditions are illegal in all three countries," Swedish Consumer Agency spokeswoman Marianne Aabyhammar told AFP Friday.
