Italy is a country shaped like a boot, and it’s is about to use its geographical likeness to unceremoniously kick the hell out of Apple.

9to5Mac reported recently that Apple’s warranty policies continue to fall foul of Italian authorities. The company was forced to pay a $US1.2 million fine for charging for the second year of AppleCare support and warranty when a free two-year warranty period is a requirement enforced by the European Union.

Now Reuters is reporting that Apple is being threatened with a temporary shuttering of its operations if it doesn’t comply.
