If Wal-Mart exited the business model, I can assure you, it was because they decided they could not make huge profits, not because of a conspiracy.
My inside information is that there were other issues that had nothing to do with the OP case. Walmart themselves contracts out their CD/DVD/music inventory and management of that supply chain to a 3rd party.
Another frivolous lawsuit thanks to some bonehead out of the 9th circuit
Another ridiculous suit... Netflix has only had modest rate increases over the past 10 years and is still a terrific bargain for those that don't mind waiting for mail delivery of their movies. Plus, with Instant Streaming now, it can't get much better.
This is a district court decision, not a Ninth Circuit decision. Also, the court is only ruling on whether the plaintiffs can be certified as a class, not on the merits of the claim.
I stand corrected!
There are days I wish the Class Action lawsuit would just go away. If it changed things more, I'd be OK with it. But most of the time, the company settles, specifically not admitting wrongdoing (if they really did do it), the members of the action get a free rental or percent off an accessory etc, the lawyers get a bunch of money, and the company keeps doing what they were doing.
Of course a lot of companies that do settle may be innocent of the charges, but it's a lot cheaper to settle than to spend the money fighting it.
Sometimes the situation is that the damage to the individual consumer is very little, but, when repeated across many consumers, the unjust enrichment to the company is great. Therein lies the situation with class actions.
Walmart was in the DVD rental market?
Well, I suppose this is what the court system is for.
Wasn't very long! I think it ran just about 2 years. I think it started during the summer of 2003 (we had just moved to Minnesota) and closed up shop about the same time in 2005.
And it closed up because it was awful. Wal-Mart wouldn't send you certain discs because they weren't family friendly. It was like renting at Blockbuster back in the day.
