Sony, mBlox Reach Tentative Settlement in $63 Million Mobile Content Class Action

This is a settlement for the Media/Telecom lawsuit.

Cook County, Ill: Playphone, 2WayTraffic, mBox and Sony Pictures are among the 14 mobile content providers who have agreed to settle a class action over allegations that wireless subscribers were being charged for unauthorized content.

The amount of the settlement is $63 million, however if AT&T settles a similar suit, and attorney's fees reach between $4 and $11.4 million, that amount could be reduced to $36 million.

Members of the class action include anyone in the United States and any of its territories, who at any time before October 10, 2009, was billed and paid for unauthorized content from any of the defendants. To find out if you're eligible, look for short codes that identify the various mobile content companies on your past phone bills. If you are currently a plaintiff in the class action settlements involving Media Breakaway or Mobile Messenger, or the pending AT&T lawsuit, you are not eligible for this settlement.

Class action members are entitled to a once only cash payment of $10 or a refund equivalent to three months of content subscription fees.
