Angeion Group Proposes Settlement in Sony Pictures Entertainment, Inc. Class Action Lawsuit

Angeion Group announced that a proposed settlement has been reached in a class action lawsuit involving Sony Pictures Entertainment Inc. A settlement has been reached in a class action lawsuit over how Sony Pictures Entertainment Inc. ("SPE") calculated profit participation relating to revenue derived from the sale of Home Videos (e.g. physical copies such as videocassettes, DVDs, and Blu-Ray), Electronic Sell-Through (e.g. digital copies delivered for permanent download such as from iTunes or Amazon), and Video-on-Demand ("VOD") (e.g. streaming on services like Netflix) on certain motion pictures. The settlement is not an admission of wrongdoing and the Court has not decided who is right and who is wrong. Instead, the parties decided to settle the dispute. This settlement provides class members: a $5 million Settlement Fund, which will be used to pay recouped profit participants who are already receiving profit participation on their contracts; and a $5 million Accounting Relief Fund, which will be used to credit the accounts of unrecouped profit participants who are not yet receiving profit participations on their contracts.

Chris Parnell and Jason Clodfelter were elevated to the role of co-presidents of Sony Pictures Television Studios, reporting to Frost.
