For the DVD enthusiast in your household, or your roommate who really loves their movies, etc....

MGM is settling a class-action lawsuit brought against them because they purposefully shipped DVDs portraying movies in the wrong format.

People who bought any of the HUGE list (PDF) of MGM DVDs in the "Widescreen" format are eligible for a FREE MGM DVD from a list of 325 movies, or $7.10 per person per DVD listed.

I for one am kind of upsetted that a company would knowingly take advantage of consumers in this way. When I purchase a movie, I want to see it in the way it was meant to be viewed, not chopped up to save disc space or spare the company an expense. It's downright dastardly!

Anyways, if you want more information on this lawsuit, please visit MGM DVD Class Action's website, where you can view the title lists, download forms to join in the lawsuit, request an exclusion, and more. I urge you to take advantage of this situation if you can, because you've already been taken advantage of...

How do you prove to MGM that you own one of the movies listed? Do you need to ship them your defective copy? Provide proof of purchase?

This sounds exploitable.
