A friend told me about this website. Basically its stating that anyone who bought music CD's, cassette tapes, or vinyl albums between January 1, 1995 and December 22, 2000 in the United States, could be entitled to $5-$20 based on the sum of money won from the settlement. The retail stores were accused of price fixing music CD's and etc. and were prosecuted by the U.S. Attorney General and lost. Now the case is in the settlement phase. The more people that sign up to receive a cash settlement, the lower the payout will be.
This Web site was established to provide information about a proposed Settlement of lawsuits brought by Attorneys General of 43 states, Commonwealths and Territories, and by counsel for the Plaintiff Settlement Class entitled In re: Compact Disc Minimum Advertised Price Antitrust Litigation.
The lawsuits, which are currently pending in the United States District Court for the District of Maine, relate to the retail pricing of prerecorded music compact discs, cassettes or vinyl albums (collectively known as prerecorded Music Products).
You may be a member of the Settlement Group and your rights against Defendants may be affected if you are a person or entity that purchased these prerecorded Music Products from a retail store during the period of January 1, 1995 through December 22, 2000.
Here's the website where you can read up more on this settlement and fill out a claim form for your cash settlement.
