Default Apple Fined in Italy Regarding Mishandling of Warranty Notification

<div class='os_post_top_link'><a href='http://www.mactech.com/2012/01/27/apple-italy-now-informing-customers-mandated-two-year-warranty' target='_blank'>http://www.mactech.com/2012/01/27/a...o-year-warranty</a><br /><br /></div><p><em>"Apple has complied with a court order in Italy and is informing customers at its online store about a legally mandated two-year warranty, reports 'The Register.'"</em></p><p><img height="400" src="http://images.thoughtsmedia.com/resizer/thumbs/size/600/adt/auto/1317323916.usr105634.jpg" style="margin-left: 100px; margin-right: 100px;" width="400" /></p><p>You can read the original story <a href="http://macte.ch/AHf0w" target="_blank">here</a>, but of course, Apple is appealing the ruling. I'm not really sure about this whole situation, since the basis is the fact that Apple didn't tell customers they had a two year warranty when they were purchasing an extended warranty. Any extended warranty I've ever purchased has always added to and not overlapped, so they must do it differently in Italy? Besides, don't you know when you purchase an item if it has a warranty and for how long the warranty lasts and what it covers? Wouldn't you want to know? I know I find out, maybe I'm an anomaly? What are your thoughts?</p>
