One of the worst pieces of software in Mac history has been forced to give money back to customers. Jeremy Kirk:
Customers of the oft-criticized security and performance program MacKeeper have until Nov. 30 to file a claim for reimbursement, the result of a proposed class-action suit settlement… Under the proposed settlement, ZeoBIT will put US$2 million into a fund for those who want a refund. But ZeoBIT will admit no fault as part of the agreement.
According to court documents, 513,330 people bought MacKeeper in the U.S. for as much as $39.95 per copy. Those people will be contacted by email to be notified of the proposed settlement.
So, let’s see: lawyers keep half. 500,000 customers will get $1-million. Before expenses. Sure. That seems fair.
