Sony BMG Digital Rights Management Consumer Class Action

Elizabeth Pritzker, as Co-lead Class Counsel, represented a nationwide class of consumers alleging deceptive conduct in design, manufacture and sale of music CDs containing digital rights management (DRM) software containing security flaws and limiting use of the CDs.  The case resulted in a settlement that provided for a nationwide recall of certain CDs, the dissemination of software utilities to remove the offending DRM software, cash and other compensation for consumers, and injunctive relief governing SONY BMG’s use of DRM.
