Update: Preliminary settlement filed in Sony suit :

Lawyers in a class action lawsuit filed against Sony BMG, First 4 Internet and SunnComm last month have submitted a preliminary settlement, which calls for Sony to stop manufacturing CDs with XCP and MediaMax DRM, provide replacement discs, and make cash payments to affected customers….“Incentive #1” will provide customers with a cash payment of $7.50 and a free download of one album from a list of more than 200 titles. “Incentive #2” removes the cash payment but allows for downloads of three albums….In order to be eligible, an individual must return the XCP laden CD to Sony, or provide the company with a receipt showing the return or exchange of the CD at a retailer after November.
