Some of the particulars:

What Is The Lawsuit About?
The Settlement resolves a class action lawsuit filed in California and other state courts. Plaintiffs assert claims against Epson America, Inc. ("EAI") based on various legal theories, including breach of contract, breach of implied warranties, unjust enrichment, fraudulent concealment, violations of California Business and Professions Code Sections 17200, etseq., and violations of the California Consumers Legal Remedies Act, California Civil Code Sections 1750, etseq., relating to the performance and other characteristics of Epson inkjet printer cartridges. Among other things, Plaintiffs allege that Epson inkjet printers and inkjet cartridges indicate that cartridges are "empty" and suspend printer function, even though substantial ink remains. EAI has denied and continues to deny the claims and any wrongdoing, but has decided to settle to-avoid the cost and inconvenience of litigation. The Court has not issued any rulings about the validity of the claims.
The parties have agreed to settle this lawsuit and provide members of the Settlement Class with certain benefits. Plaintiffs' counsel believe that the Settlement is fair, reasonable and in the best interests of Settlement Class Members.

Who Is Included In The Settlement?
The "Settlement Class" certified by the Court for settlement purposes is defined as all persons, sole proprietorships, partnerships, corporations or any other entities located within the 50 United States and the District of Columbia who, on or after April 8,1999 and through May 8,2006: (i) purchased, leased or otherwise received any Epson inkjet printer ("Epson InkJet Printer") (specifically including, but not limited to, Epson Stylus printers (desktop and photo models), PictureMate printers and Epson Pro model printers (ProGraphics printers, large format printers and proofing printers) but excluding Epson branded point of sale receipt printers); and who (ii) purchased, utilized or otherwise received any inkjet cartridge for an Epson InkJet Printer ("Epson Ink Cartridge"). A complete list of qualifying printers is available at www.epsonsettlement.com. Excluded from the class are EAI, any person or entities who distribute, sell or service Epson InkJet Printers, and their parents, subsidiaries, affiliates, employees, officers and directors. Also excluded from the class is any judge, justice or judicial officer presiding over this matter and the members of their immediate families and judicial staff. A "Settlement Class Member" means a person and/or entity who falls within the definition of the Settlement Class.
