The antitrust proceedings for DVD computer manufacturers have been over for more than 7 years. As part of the settlement, the drivers of the companies involved will receive $ 10 compensation.
Court proceedings often take many years, especially if they are antitrust proceedings. One of these began more than seven years ago and involved companies producing computer DVD drives that allow us to install software on our hardware.
The process has finally come to an end and, under the settlement, every propulsion owner from the collusion company will get $ 10 compensation.
Sony, NEC, Panasonic and Hitachi-LG have been accused of price collusion forcing OEMs such as HP and Dell to pay higher prices for their drives. As a result of the trial, one Hitachi-LG boss landed in jail for half a year, while confiscated companies had to pay a total of $ 124.5 million in fines.
