Colin Higgins Productions, Ltd. v. Paramount Pictures Corporation

Case No. BC499179

Los Angeles Superior Court, Central Civil West Courthouse


If You Are a Profit Participant on a Motion Picture Released by Paramount Pictures Corporation for Home Video, Electronic Sell-Through, or Streaming You May Financially Benefit from a Class Action Settlement.

A settlement has been reached in a class action lawsuit over how Paramount Pictures Corporation (“Paramount”) 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 iTunes or Amazon) and Streaming (e.g. digital copies that are not permanent downloads such as Netflix or Hulu) on certain motion pictures.

You may be a Class Member if you are a person or entity (or their successors-in-interest, assigns, and heirs) who is a party to a profit participation contract with Paramount dated on or before July 5, 1980.

This Settlement provides Class Members with a: (1) $3,405,000 Settlement Fund, which will be used to pay recouped profit participants who are already receiving profit participation on their contracts; and, (2) $3,405,000 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. You may receive benefits from either or both of these funds if you qualify.

SUMMARY OF YOUR LEGAL RIGHTS AND OPTIONS IN THE SETTLEMENT

REMAIN PART OF THE SETTLEMENT CLASS

If you received the Notice in the mail and you are part of the Settlement Class, you do not have to take any action to remain part of the Settlement Class and be eligible to receive the benefits, payments and credits offered by the Settlement. Payments and credits will be applied to eligible Class Members automatically if you are part of the Settlement.
