I have received a lot of e-mails regarding this e-mail people are confused as to if this is real or a spam scam. I have verified that this is a real lawsuit again Netflix. The lawsuit is regarding “Netflix unlawfully kept and disclosed information, including records on the movies and TV shows its customers viewed.” This e-mail lets you decide if you would like to opt in or out of the lawsuit. This is for users who are and were subscribers. It has not been said how much money each customer will be paid but from what I have read on http://arstechnica.com/tech-policy/2012/07/class-action-lawsuit-settlement-forces-netflix-privacy-changes/ and from the e-mail itself “Netflix will pay out $9 million into a settlement fund. $2.25 million of that will go to attorneys’ fees, $30,000 to be split between the two named plaintiffs, and the rest going to charitable donations.“ A Settlement has been reached in a class action lawsuit that claims Netflix unlawfully kept and disclosed information, including records on the movies and TV shows its customers viewed. Netflix denies that it has done anything wrong.
There is nothing you need to do about this! Just ignore it!
