The animosity towards the way Apple does business with iTunes is continuing to grow

DailyTech yesterday reported that German and French consumer groups have joined forces with groups from Norway, Denmark and Sweden.  Today, however, Dutch consumer protection agency Consumentenbond also joined the battle to force Apple to change the way it operates its iTunes MP3 download service.  Apple has until Oct. 1, 2007 to comply before facing legal action.

Consumentenbond has filed a formal complaint seeking an investigation into the business practices of Apple's iTunes.  The group is also urging Dutch consumers to avoid buying iPods and downloading songs from iTunes -- other MP3 players and music download services such as eMusic are recommended by the group.

The organizations are calling for Apple to remove limitations that prevent digital music consumers from being able to download a song through iTunes and not be able to put it on any non-Apple MP3 players.  

A consumer group for Norway has given Apple until Sept. 30 to change the way it does business or face possible legal action.
