Record Industry Cash Settlement or Give Me My $20!
Not necessarily front page news, but I found this link which reports that a class action suit against the recording industry for price fixing was recently successful, and essentially no one is stepping up to take the money. It appears if you bought a CD between 1995 and 2000, then you're eligible for a small share of the settlement. I'm not really endorsing the idea of jumping on board this thing, but I find it surprising how little press it's gotten. I think the fact alone that the recording industry lost a large sum case for fixing prices might be trumpeted a bit more often? Maybe I just have a short memory.
