Congrats anthony, I've never won a lawsuit.
Do you have to report that to the IRS? Posted Image

Maybe you could check with a tax attorney.

Mine came today and I almost accidentally threw it away. It's, physically, so little and today was a heavy day for junk mail. It almost hit the trash with the rest of the junk. Now I have $13.86 too. K-Tel here I come!Posted Image

Got mine. When I first saw the outside where it says 'CD Antitrust Lawsuit, Settlement Materials Enclosed', I thought I was getting sued by the RIAA!! I had forgotten all about it!

Most of the media giants own music and movie intrests. If you want to hurt their feeling and pocketbooks, ya'all will have to find something else to spend the money on.

The leading music firms and film studios are linked (Sony/Columbia/Epic, Universal/Philips/DG/Decca/Verve/Interscope/A&M, Warner Bros/Teldec/Elektra/Reprise/Atlantic). I don't know about Disney, Fox and Viacom/Paramount.


Blue Note and Virgin are really EMI
Arista, Arte Nova and RCA are BMG


I'm going to buy a CD with my check.
What labels are truly independent?



Rounder? Naxos? Harmonia Mundi? BIS? Hyperion?

This is a ripoff. The lawyers made all the money, not the consumers who got burned.

I just got my check today, and the cool thing is, I don't even remember what I did to sign on to the lawsuit... Posted Image
If it's not worth waiting until the last minute to do, then it's not worth doing.
