Dutch Regulator Continues Fining Apple 5 Million Euros Per Week

Toby Sterling, reporting for Reuters:

A letter from Apple to the ACM dated Feb. 28 seen by Reuters said the solution it has offered would require only a “minor technical change” with no additional costs. The letter argued it is common practice for developers to modify their software to comply with law in various jurisdictions.

“I understand that currently we have a difference of opinion that may ultimately have to be resolved by a court,” the letter signed by Apple Chief Compliance Officer Kyle Andeer said. “I hope we can find a mutually agreeable solution that will allow us to move past this issue.”

A spokesperson for the ACM said the agency was aware of Apple’s letter but it did not represent a change of position.

Seems inevitable this is heading to court.
