    Netflix lawsuit email

    I didn't see any other thread about this. I got an email 2 days ago from videoprivacyclass . org about a video privacy lawsuit against Netflix. Did anyone else get this?

    Doesn't sound like anything changes for me. I've never rented anyway.

    I got it as well. Aren't you only supposed to reply back if you want your own representation on these things?

    I got one for Yahoo Search Marketing and ended up getting a check a year or so later for $400.

    Re: Netflix lawsuit email

    I'll just take whatever the class wins. Probably something like $4 in the end once the lawyers have taken their chunk out and the rest gets distributed to class members.

    Re: Netflix lawsuit email

    the part it says "If you do nothing, you will remain in the Settlement and your rights will be affected" worries me. I don't want to remain in the settlement if have to pay fees.

    Then it states if you want to exclude yourself you have until Nov. 14th. but it doesn't tell you how to exclude yourself...

    We won't get anything in this case.

    According to the settlement, Netflix—which denies that it has committed any wrongdoing—will pay out $9 million into a settlement fund. $2.25 million of that will go to attorneys’ fees, $30,000 to be split between the two named plaintiffs, and the rest going to charitable donations

    They get these from time to time. This isnt my first notice. You most likely will end up winning a credit to your bill for a month or so.

    Even if they did subscribers would receive less than a $1.
