Letters have been sent to state and local government entities in California notifying them of their share of the $70 million class action settlement resolving certain antitrust claims against Microsoft Corporation. Each eligible entity may designate one or more people who are authorized to redeem its settlement benefits for cash by submitting proof of its purchases (made anytime between June 23, 2006 and April 13, 2012) of any brand of desktop, laptop or tablet computers, printers, scanners, monitors, keyboards, pointing devices (e.g. mouse or trackball) or any non-custom software for such hardware created by any software publisher for use on any operating system platform.

Each eligible entity must redeem at least $500 of their settlement benefits by April 21, 2008 or else the unredeemed portion of that $500 will be reallocated to other members of the settlement class. The remaining settlement balance must be redeemed by April 13, 2012.
