An U.S. Apple iTunes customer is taking the company to court after he paid US$4.99 for an HD film without realizing a better suited SD version was available, reports “Macworld UK” (

The customer, from Florida, claims that consumer protection laws have been violated. He argues that he was unaware that a standard-definition version of the film, “Big Daddy,” which he purchased, was available. The HD version he bought at $4.99 cost $1 more than the SD version and the customer is now convinced Apple should be compensating the “millions” of customers who he thinks must have run into the same problem as him, reports “Macworld UK.”
