    Well I had forgotten all about it, but a long time ago I had received word that there was a lawsuit being filed against major recording companies for allegedly getting together and raising the prices of compact discs..... well I signed up on the website, it was a sign here typa thing...

    Well today, I get this letter in the mail, it reads:

    February, 2004

    Dear Texas Music Purchaser:

    As Attorney General for the State of Texas, I am pleased to
    enclose payment for your claim in the settlement of the
    Compact Disc Minimum Advertised Price Antitrust Litigation.
    This lawsuit was brought by the Attorneys General of 43
    states and three territories and by the counsel for Private Class
    Plaintiffs on behalf of the purchasers of music CDS. In
    accordance with the terms of the court-approved settlement,
    payment is being made to music purchasers who filed a valid
    and timely claim.

    Whether you filed your claim online at the settlement web
    site, www.MusicCDSettlement.com, or by mail, the attached
    payment represents full payment of your portion of the
    Settlement. Please note that the attached payment
    instruments must be cashed by May 20, 2004.

    It is a pleasure to bring this matter to a satisfactory
    conclusion and to return value to consumers who purchased
    CDs while the challenged pricing policies were in effect.

    Greg Abbott
    Attorney General of Texas

    and in a way, it's like i didn't. in one hand, out the other. to the credit card co. that shit is such a racket.
