Class Action Lawsuit Continues Against Apple

Episode 1142 (02:25)


A class action lawsuit against Apple is ongoing over the iPod and an old sync feature. The suit is all about the fact that Apple iTunes would erase an iPod if it wasn't recognized by the computer. The lawsuit represents 8 million users for about $350 million, of which half will go to lawyers, of course. That leaves everyone else with a settlement of about $0.50 a piece.

It even involves a deposition of Steve Jobs, who looks to be testifying from the grave via videotape. In the deposition, Jobs said his decision was that Apple was the only one at the time doing what it was doing, and record labels forced Apple to protect the music with such a draconian measure.
