In an interview with KCCI-TV , the Microsoft officials said that almost all the refund checks have already been mailed, regarding the Class Action settlement case. The checks and vouchers are likely to be mailed in the next few weeks.
The settlement called for cash payments and vouchers worth: $16 for each Microsoft Windows copy; $29 for each Microsoft Office copy; $10 for each Microsoft Word, Home Essentials or Works Suite copy; and $25 for each Microsoft Excel copy.
Officials said that the filing deadline was 14th December 2007. However, the Iowans can still file cases, if they can show any reason for the delay, sources said. The settlement covers the consumers or businesses who obtained certain Microsoft software between May 18, 1994 and June 30, 2006, for use in Iowa, and not for resale.
