Mobile content legal action settled in USA

A group of mobile content providers, including Flycell, Glomobi, Mobilefunster, Thumbplay and WebAMG Holdings, along with marketing affiliate Glispa and aggregator Motricity, have agreed to settle a number of class action lawsuits against them, involving claims that these companies charged customers for 'mobile content' without authorisation. In a statement, the plaintiff's law firm notes that "each of the defendants has denied any wrongful conduct, and the settlement is in no way a judgment or ruling by the Court that the defendants did anything wrong."

The case involved content such as ringtones, games, graphics, news and other alerts that can be charged directly to consumers' mobile phone bills. The settlement includes a $9 million fund to pay claims. Eligible claimants who'd been billed for unauthorised content can receive a one-time cash award of $10 or a refund of up to three months of content subscription charges.
