In a class action suit filed in San Jose, California, Noam Lazebnik says Apple engaged in false advertising by providing only 8 episodes to consumers even though its “Season Pass” page explains that viewers will get “every episode in that season.” .

“When a consumer buys a ticket to a football game, he does not have to leave at halftime. When a consumer buys an opera ticket, he does not get kicked out at intermission,” says the claim. It adds that Breaking Bad, which is about a high school chemistry teacher who builds a meth empire, is the most popular show in Apple’s iTunes’ store

Don't get me wrong, I hate Apple as much as the next guy, but is that really Apple's fault?

Shouldn't they be suing the studio???

People have too much time, and need something to do with it, plus ppl in the US love to sue large companies, especially after being coached and conditioned by lawyers for ages now. 1+ for the parasites making money out of thin air, increasing the living cost and required bureaucracy for all of us with each of those useless cases.

Oh, and iphones/macs are overpriced. biggrin.gif

For those too busy to read the article. Apple split Season 5 into two Packs. Season 5 and another called the Final 8, the lawsuit is justified because of that.

I think Apple's best course would be to tread lightly. thumb.gif

Plus, who doesn't already know how Breaking Bad ends at this point? The final episode scripts were leaked ages ago.

Everybody knows that Walt Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)
ends up dying in a blaze of glory after Skylar, Jesse, and Walt Jr are killed. Hank orchestrates it all and ends up losing his position and committing suicide.

im glad some people stood up and fought for there rights of ownership. if no one did, we would be taking it in the rear all the time by these companies and there "policies".

It was a legit leak? D:
Three episodes to go and too close to spoil.
I'd hunt down the person who spoiled it for me (jk). tongue.gif
