20th Century Fox Home Video Class Action Settlement
Class members are all persons and entities (and their successors-in-interest, assigns, and heirs) that are parties to a “Class Profit Participation Contract” (defined by the Settlement Agreement as a Profit Participation Contract using form definitions drafted by Fox before May 31, 1989, that, either as initially drafted or later amended, do not state an express percentage of Home Video Revenue and/or Electronic Sell-Through Revenue to use in calculating a Profit Participation).
When a person or entity is a party to both, (a) one or more Class Profit Participation Contracts; and (b) one or more profit participation contracts that do not meet the definition of a Class Profit Participation Contract, that person or entity is a member of the settlement class only with regard to the Class Profit Participation Contract(s).
