Apple hit with class action lawsuit over iTunes double-billing

Mel Martin

Apple has been hit with another class-action lawsuit for double billing customers in the iTunes store.

New York resident Robert Herskowitz claims Apple charged him twice for the single "Whataya Want from Me" by Adam Lambert. Herskowitz says he contacted Apple and got an automated response telling him his request was being reviewed. The message he received from Apple wasn't so friendly.

"Your request for a refund for 'Whataya Want from Me' was carefully considered; however, according to the iTunes Store Terms of Sale, all purchases made on the iTunes Store are ineligible for refund. This policy matches Apple's refund policies and provides protection for copyrighted materials."

So, the lawsuit is underway, and Herskowitz is looking for others who claim they have been similarly unfairly charged.
