The problem is the same with this as most class actions, the people that were supposedly wronged get nothing, instead THE LAWYERS get it OR any "charitable non-profits". Also keep in mind there are MANY "501-c3 SuperPacs out there, they are non-profit and will go to support the candidates of their choice. How do we know the money isn't going to them? The laws need to be changed to first, end this Opt out BS. It should be Opt IN ONLY. Second, 95% of any fines or rewards should go to those injured, not just the named people and most of all the scumbag attorneys.
I never opted IN to this class action and they have zero legal right to automatically opt me in. In fact the attorneys for the plaintiffs violated my privacy rights by getting my information in the FIRST place, maybe we need to get together and file a class action AGAINST the plaintiffs Attorneys for VIOLATING our rights. Much less making it really hard to opt-out. Since the statement only came in email and not certified mail, I will consider that I was NOT legally informed and if I am barred from filing against Netflix if I so choose, I will sue the plaintiffs and their attorneys. All this accomplishes is the scumbag lawyers making a lot of money and us "victims" paying more for the service because of it. What we really need is more dead lawyers.
