Have you received any emails or letters claiming you as part of a class-action lawsuit? I get about three a years and it is usually about as pointless of this crime here:
A proposed settlement of a class action lawsuit could affect you if you purchased an Apple iTunes gift card and the card or packaging to which it was attached contained language that â€œsongs are 99Â¢â€ or other language indicating that songs are priced at 99Â¢ (referred to as a â€œ99Â¢ iTunes gift cardâ€ in the rest of this Notice).
Why yes, I probably did buy an iTunes gift card that said Songs are 99Â¢. So what’s the problem officer?
Good Lord man! Kudos to the eagle-eyed lawyers who vigilantly guard my well being against corporate fascists. To think that Apple would cleverly work a 30Â¢ scam into an innocuous “promotion” then manipulate space-time where prices would rise in the future. I feel like you’re the handsome Superman who just rushed to the scene and saved my virtue from a would be rapist.
Oh. Well thank you anyway, lawyer people for taking up the banner of Justice and righting a $3.25 cent wrong. I’m sure you got the same $3.25 reward from this and you’re cool with that because it was about doing the right thing.
Did Apple actually do anything malicious or illegal in this case?
In another era, one might call this a protection racket. But Apple is an evil corporation (OK, I’ll concede this one) and “the people” get a free trinket. So it’s A-OK!
UPDATE iOwnTheWorld makes the connection between slimy lawyers and Democrats.
