Did You Own a CD or DVD Player Around the Turn of the Millennium? Then You’re Entitled to a Cash Settlement.

Did you purchase a device with an optical disc drive in the early 2000s? Find out how you can get a share of an almost $30 million lawsuit.

Earlier this week, a class-action lawsuit was settled for $29.7 million over alleged price-fixing of DVD players, Blu-ray players, CD players, desktop computers, and video game consoles.

It is alleged that consumers and businesses spent more than they should have on optical disc drive-equipped electronics between January 1, 2004 and January 1, 2010.

BenQ, Hitachi-LG, NEC, Panasonic, Phillips, Pioneer, Quanta, Sony, TEAC, and Toshiba Samsung are among the brands named in the lawsuit.

Canadians are entitled to a minimum of $20 per claim without providing proof of purchase.

For claims over $20, a receipt is required, however, the amount paid out will depend on the number and size of claims submitted by all Canadians.

Online claims can be made until November 14, 2022 by clicking here.
