Sony settles lawsuits

Embattled music label Sony BMG Music Entertainment has agreed to settle consumer complaints about its controversial attempt to copy-protect CDs.

Under terms of a settlement consolidating several lawsuits, Sony will give consumers who purchased an estimated 10 million CDs a combination of cash, replacement music and free downloads.

The settlement, which must be approved by a New York court, consolidates most of the lawsuits related to "SonyGate". A handful are still outstanding, including a lawsuit by Texas' attorney general.
