Federal Court Rules Consumers Can Proceed as Class Action against Symantec Corp. and Digital River for Misleading Product Re-Downloading Service

A federal court ruled that purchasers of Norton antivirus software who bought a re-downloading service can proceed on a class action case against Symantec and Digital River Inc. The plaintiffs allege that Digital River and Symantec duped customers into buying 'Extended Download Service' and later 'Norton Download Insurance' re-downloading services the companies would automatically include in the customer's shopping cart when they bought a Norton security product. Plaintiffs also allege that the companies deliberately hid from customers material information, including that the customers could re-download their Norton purchase for free at any time during their subscription. In certifying the case as a class action on March 31, Judge John Tunheim, of the U.S. District Court for the District of Minnesota, found Symantec and Digital River had uniform policies of withholding information about free alternatives, while including descriptors of the re-downloading services that suggested to customers that they could only re-download their product after 60 days if they had bought the Extended Download Service/Norton Download Insurance at the time they bought their software. The Court certified the case as a national class action, applying the consumer protection laws from Minnesota and California--the state law specified in Digital River's and Symantec's respective terms of use. Plaintiffs allege millions of customers purchased the service, which costs around $5.99 and $10.99. Without a class action suit, individual plaintiffs could not likely afford to bring a lawsuit that could bring to an end wrongful business practices such as those alleged.
