And now it’s getting exciting

Earlier we told you about how Apple and Norway weren’t exactly best friends.  Well, the deadline Norway’s Consumer Ombudsman set for Apple has now passed

Norway’s consumer mediator said Thursday he would take US electronics manufacturer Apple’s iTunes before a government agency for failing to make its online store compatible with music players other than its iPod.

“iTunes has shown a lacking will to comply with our demand and we are now preparing to try this case in the Market Council,” Consumer Ombudsman Bjoern Erik Thon said in a statement.

I’m not generally a betting man, but I certainly don’t like Apple’s odds of winning the case in the Market Council.
