A Dutch computer user group sued Dell last week, alleging parts of the sales terms and conditions that the world's largest PC maker uses violate Dutch consumer protection law.
On behalf of its more than 200,000 members, the Hobby Computer Club (HCC) of Houten, Netherlands, is asking a Dutch court to bar Dell from continuing to use the terms and conditions or face a fine of $5825 per day with a maximum of $5.8 million, according to a copy of the legal documents published on the HCC Web site.
The user group also asked the court to order Dell to place an ad in several major Dutch newspapers acknowledging that its terms and conditions had violated Dutch law. If such an ad isn't placed within two days after the court's decision, Dell should be fined $2900 a day with a maximum of $2.9 million, the HCC requested.
