Mobile Content Class Action Settlement Reached With m-Qube

This is a settlement for the Media/Telecom lawsuit.

Chicago, Ill: A global settlement agreement was reached promising to conclude numerous separate class action lawsuits filed throughout the country involving claims that unauthorized charges for "mobile content" were placed on consumers' cell phone bills.

The settlement, which was preliminarily approved by the Circuit Court of Cook County in Illinois on November 3, 2009, entitles wireless customers across the country to receive refunds for unauthorized mobile content charges and requires that the defendants remain in compliance with the consumer best practices guidelines established by the Mobile Marketing Association. The defendant, m-Qube, Inc., has denied any wrongful conduct.

Mobile content refers to products such as ringtones, games, graphics, news, and other alerts that generally are received via text messages on mobile phones and are charged directly to customers' mobile phone bills. Although a relatively new form of commerce, mobile content has evolved to form a large and increasingly important industry. Defendant m-Qube acts as an "aggregator" in the industry, which means that it acts as a middleman between numerous merchants that sell mobile content and the wireless carriers who provide wireless phone and data service. See for complete details.

The lawsuit alleged that there were not adequate safeguards in place to ensure that customers are only billed for services they agreed to purchase. The resolution of this suit follows several other recent settlements in the mobile content industry related to unauthorized charges.
