It's not a warranty damnit.
And there's no legal requirement for a warranty in ANY european country.
I agree that the Consumer Law acts like a warranty but it's not one.
For an example.
Finnish consumer law lasts forever, it also requires the company to prove it's not a manufacturing defect.
Swedish consumer law lasts for 3 years, however it requires the customer to prove to the manufacturer that it's a defect.
Norwegian consumer law lasts for 5 years, it requires the company to prove to the customer it's not a manufacturing defect.
Obviously these laws have several more rules and paragraphs, but it's not a warranty - it's a consumer protection law just so companies cannot do what they do in the US. It is however not a RIGHT to get stuff repaired just becuase it broke after 2 years of usage, you have to claim consumer law.
I worked(read:8,5 hours every day) with this for 2,5 years, handling only consumer law cases from Scandinavia.
It never once claims that the warranty needs to be X years, ever wondered why Apple has 1 year warranty in every country in the world?
