SonyBMG has reportedly reached a settlement agreement in the class action lawsuits. Alex Eckelberry has posted the motion proposing the settlement, and a brief summary of its terms. The settlement must be approved by a court before taking effect.
We’re on holiday hiatus, so I won’t analyze the settlement now. Feel free to discuss it in the comments, though.
(Update: Discussion had already started in the comments on another post, starting here. It has moved over here now.)
(Update 2: Jim Tyre pointed out that what I had previously called the “settlement” was actually a motion asking the court to approve the settlement. I modified the text to reflect this, and I added a link to the actual settlement.)
