Submission + - Apple threatens Danish reseller of iPhone 1

Per Abrahamsen writes: "Apple has has send a letter (article in Danish) to Telekæden, the largest independent cell phone chain in Denmark, demanding that sign an agreement to stop reselling parallel imported iPhones and deliver all unsold phones to Apples Danish lawyer. This in spite of both German and French courts declaring Apple's tying the iPhone to a single operator for being against European law.

The price at Telekæden for a phone not bound to any operator is DKK 5,900, or US$ 1,200. This compares favorable with the official minimum prices (including subscription) of US$ 1,840 when buying from AT&T, £900 (US$ 1850) in UK from O2, or 1600 (US$ 2350) from T-Mobile in Germany."

Submission + - The Ryzom MMORPG won't be free

Per Abrahamsen writes: "The bid to make Ryzom live on as the first free MMORPG has failed, despite raising 170.000 Euro in donation pledges.

From the announcement:
I have bad news this time. Our offer has been declined by the court. At the end, there were three offers presented, and the other two were bigger than our's. They are keeping more employees than we do, and offer more money. We should get the details of the other offers soon, so I should be able to tell you more then. In the meantime, I'd like to personally congratulate the winner, Gameforge, and I wish them good luck.

A failure will not appear until a unit has passed final inspection.
