Saw this on [megarad]:
In September of 2002, the top 5 U.S. music distributors and 3 music retailers accepted a fine of $143 million in penalty for fixing prices on CDs and screwing consumers. This fine is not going to the government -- it's going to you. All claimants will recieve between $5 and $20, depending on how many respond. (If too many respond to make it financially feasible to mail the checks, all monies will go to charities.)
All you have to do to get your $20 back is fill out this form:
Me, I largely stopped buying CDs long ago. In fact, when I got my car 2 years or so ago, I had them remove the CD player and put in a tape deck so that I could plug whatever mp3 player, etc. I wanted to into it easily. In the past 3 years I've bought maybe 5 CDs retail (I've bought more than that directly from indie labels like [posi]).
But before I got tired of paying $17 for a CD I would be tired of soon enough, I collected 120 or more CDs bought from Tower, etc. Think about it. $20 sure isn't enough to make up for my losses!
