Sony Rootkit Settlement, Part II

February 4th, 2007

DiscIf you bought one of the CDs associated with the Sony rootkit fiasco, there is a second settlement for which you qualify (first one here).

This settlement is between the Federal Trade Commission and Sony. It allows you to (1) exchange any affected CDs and (2) receive up to $150 in reimbursement for your efforts to remove the DRM software.

Everybody and their brother has been reporting on this, but nobody gave instructions on how to file a claim. So keep an eye on Chad’s News, and another one on the settlement page—the current info is for the previous settlement.
