Sony BMG Music Entertainment will pay $1.5 million and kick in thousands more in customer refunds to settle lawsuits brought by California and Texas over music CDs that installed a hidden antipiracy program on consumers' computers.
But, it appear to be only with California and Texas. Still, at $175 per machine infected with MediaMax or XCP in those two states does add up to a tidy amount. Hopefully the rest of the music industry can learn a lesson from this.
...In addition, Sony BMG agreed to reimburse consumers whose computers were damaged. Customers in both states can file a claim with Sony BMG to receive refunds of up to $175.
