You know three things for sure about this: (1) It will be damn near
impossible for the consumer to ever be able to receive anything of value
from the settlement. It will probably some sort of coupon. (2) The states'
Attorneys General and the lawyers involved will pocket most of that $67
million as cash money. KA-CHING! And (3), the music industry will easily
pass on the cost of the settlement to the consumer. BOHICA.
Now where did I put those darn receipts????
