hypnosec writes: Amazon, in an email to Kindle owners, has a revealed that following the settlement in the eBook price fixing lawsuit customers will be entitled to refunds between 30 cents and $1.32 on each book purchased. If the $69 million settlement between the Attorney Generals of most of the states and book publishers Hachette, Simon & Schuster and Harper Collins is approved by the court in February 2013, the funds will be provided as credits to customers directly in their accounts which may be used to buy eBooks or printed books. Users may even request checks for the amount of credit that has been applied to their accounts. “If the Court approves the settlements, the account credit will appear automatically and can be used to purchase Kindle books or print books”, wrote Amazon in the email.
The time spent on any item of the agenda [of a finance committee] will be
in inverse proportion to the sum involved.
