Apple and Microsoft have been ordered to appear before a parliamentary committee and explain why Australian consumers pay far more than those overseas for information technology goods.
The House of Representatives committee on infrastructure and communications has issued a summons to Apple, Microsoft and Adobe requiring them to appear before a public hearing on March 22 in Canberra.
The committee was established in May 2012 to investigate why local IT consumers pay higher prices for hardware and software.
