Nordic consumer protection regulators held a meeting with Apple this week to discuss changes to its iTunes music service and said they had made important progress.
In June, the Norwegian Consumer Ombudsman decided that Apple was breaking local laws and ordered various changes.
Norway, Sweden and Finland were all represented at the meeting.
The Swedish ombudsman told Reuters after the meeting: "We had a good and constructive dialogue with iTunes and the desire from the company to reach a solution was great."
The agencies said there would be more meetings with Apple and they hope it will be possible to resolve the issue without taking legal action. ®
