Lawsuits can drag on for years and years, sometimes even decades. When and if the long arm of the law reaches the culprits, sometimes it may no longer matter, which is why delaying tactics are often employed in cases. Such as this antitrust class action lawsuit against certain makers of optical disk drives or ODDs, a.k.a. DVD drives. After more than 7 years, the defendants finally settled the matter, but it might be a tad too late for consumers to dig out their decades-old receipts to claim their $10 share of the settlement.
