$1.2 million is nothing to Apple

Last year the Italian courts levied a fine against Apple of $1.2 million that had to do with the sales of AppleCare protection plans in Italy. The thing that bothered authorities in Italy was Italian law requires Apple to support all products sold for at least two years. The Italian courts felt Apple didn't adequately inform customers that they already had two years of coverage and instead sold them warranties they may not needed otherwise.

Apple filed an appeal and has now lost that appeal. Apple is not out of appeals at this point and could seek to appeal in a different court. I would bet that's exactly what Apple does. Apple could also choose to pay the $1.2 million fine and be done with it. With billions and billions in the bank $1.2 million is pocket change to Apple.
