Abstract

Enforcement represents the most challenging task of consumer law. In the Eurpean Union, consumers are typically faced with numerous problems when it comes to protection of their consumer rights which have been infringed. This Paper examines the Apple case as one of the most successful examples of enforcement of EU consumer law that took place in a dozen of EU Member States. Apple was found to have breached a number of the provisions of EU consumer law that deal with the issues of legal and commercial guarantee and the fairness of commercial practices and contract terms. The Apple case may be used as a model of a successful, pan-European enforcement of consumer law.

Keywords: consumer; commercial practices; enforcement; EU law; collective redress
