Anyone else get this? Is it real? What should I do? If I do nothing I'm involved but if I exclude myself I can sue them on my own? If You Are a Current or Former Netflix Subscriber A Class Action Settlement Could Affect You Para una notificaciÃ³n en EspaÃ±ol, llamar 1-866-898-5088 o visitar www.VideoPrivacyClass.com Our records show that you were a current or former Netflix subscriber as of July 5, 2012. We are emailing to tell you about a Settlement that may affect your legal rights. Please read this email carefully. Go to www.VideoPrivacyClass.com for more information. A Settlement has been reached in a class action lawsuit that claims Netflix unlawfully kept and disclosed information, including records on the movies and TV shows its customers viewed. Netflix denies that it has done anything wrong. What does the Settlement provide? Netflix has agreed to change its data retention practices so that it separates (known as â€œdecouplingâ€) Entertainment Content Viewing History (that is, movies and TV shows that someone watched) from identification information for those subscribers who have not been a Netflix subscriber for at least 365 days, with some exceptions. In addition, Netflix will pay $9 million into a Settlement Fund to: â€¢ Make donations to Court-approved not-for-profit organizations, institutions, or programs. â€¢ Pay notice and settlement administration expenses. â€¢ Pay attorneysâ€™ fees of up to 25% or $2.25 million of the Settlement Fund, plus up to $25,000 in expenses. â€¢ Pay a total incentive award of $30,000 to the Named Plaintiffs. Proposals from potential donation recipients will be sought, and, after consideration, recommendations will be made to the Court. A list of the proposed donation recipients will be posted on the website. Your Options If you do nothing, you will remain in the Settlement and your rights will be affected. If you do not want to be included, you must exclude yourself by November 14, 2012. If you exclude yourself you will keep your right to sue Netflix about the claims in this lawsuit. If you remain in the Settlement, you can object to it by November 14, 2012. The Court will hold a hearing on December 5, 2012 to consider any objections, whether to approve the Settlement, award attorneysâ€™ fees, and incentive award. You can appear at the hearing, but you donâ€™t have to. You can hire your own attorney, at your own expense, to appear or speak for you at the hearing.
