    Apple Inc. has often portrayed itself as the champion of

    consumers, with its advertising campaigns on “1984”, “Think

    Different”, and “Rip, Mix, Burn”. However, this reputation

    has been called into question after Apple refused to appear

    before the Parliament’s inquiry into IT Pricing in Australia

    and explain its pricing policies in Australia.

    Apple is not alone. Adobe, Amazon.com, Nintendo, Lenovo,

    and others have come under criticism for price discrimination

    in Australia. Furthermore, there has been a concern that

    information technology companies have engaged in a

    deliberate strategy of stonewalling the Australian Parliament.

    CHOICE Australia has provided compelling evidence to the

    inquiry that Australian consumers suffer from significant and

    unjustified price discrimination – particularly in respect of

    music downloads from iTunes, PC games, console games
