    I personally would not recommend trying to get yourself in this settlement:

    "The cash paid by the Defendants, after the payment of attorneys' fees, litigation and Settlement administration costs, shall be distributed to consumers who purchased Music Products. The number of claims filed will determine the actual amount of the individual refund but will not exceed $20.00 per claimant. If the number of claims filed would result in refunds of less than $5.00 per claimant, there will be no cash distribution to individual consumers. Rather, the cash portion of the Settlement shall be distributed to not-for-profit, charitable, governmental or public entities to be used for music-related purposes or programs for the benefit of consumers who purchased Music Products."

    They are betting on LOTS of people trying to be part of the settlement. I've seen this before, and quite frankly, they're pushing this as hard as they can. The more people that sign up, the bigger chance they won't have to actually hand out money to the consumers.

    Keep the numbers low, don't file a claim. This will make it a bigger chance they have to give out larger amounts of money.
