If you’re a U.S. resident who bought a CD in the U.S. between 1995 and 2000, you’re entitled to $20. Why? Because courts found music labels guilty of price-fixing. As Cory Doctorow notes in Boing Boing:
If so many people sign up that the settlement ends up getting spread too thin, the RIAA will mail charitable organizations the checks instead. You can’t lose! Unless you don’t sign up. Despite notices of the settlement in TV Guide and throughout blogistan, the cash remains unclaimed. What are you waiting for? Claim it!
It’s easy, and took me three minutes. Do it today! (And surely you have friends who’d be interested in their own President Jackson…) | I want my $20!
