After Amazon and other companies began notifying customers over the weekend that they are entitled to credits for e-books bought from publishers who are part of the e-book pricing fixing lawsuit, Kinsella Media, the "notice provider for the State Attorneys General E-book Settlements," has issued a release notifying the public about their rights under the state settlements.
According to a statement, notice has begun via email and postcard, alerting consumers to their options. The notice states that the process of payment will not begin until after the settlement has been approved, although those opting out or submitting claims to receive a check, rather than a credit, must be filed online or postmarked by December 12, 2012. Currently a public hearing is scheduled for February 8, 2013. In addition, the notice states that the “exact amount to be paid per e-book” is not yet finalized.
