If you are a current or former SiriusXM subscriber, then you may have a claim to recover your payments of the hidden 21.4% U.S. Music Royalty Fee.
Customers complain that SiriusXM has been charging a hidden “U.S. Music Royalty Fee” that increases the plan price by a whopping 21.4% above the advertised and quoted price.
SiriusXM does not disclose the name or amount of the fee in its advertising. Consumers say that once they have signed up, SiriusXM prevents them from learning about the fee by automatically renewing their service without sending them bills or payment receipts.
None of SiriusXM’s competitors charge any such fee. To date, it is estimated that SiriusXM has collected more than $5 billion in these bogus fee payments.
Recovering your payments of SiriusXM’s “U.S. Music Royalty Fee” may start with a process called arbitration.
SiriusXM’s customer agreement attempts to prohibit consumers from bringing a class action in court. Instead, each customer must bring a separate “arbitration” to be decided by the American Arbitration Association (“AAA”), a private organization.
This law firm will file large numbers of arbitrations against SiriusXM simultaneously. SiriusXM may refuse to participate in the arbitrations or to comply with the AAA’s requirements, such that the AAA may be unable to hold the arbitrations. If that happens, the attorney-client relationship would end and the law firm would file class action lawsuits instead. In that case, we would let you know which class action may apply to you.
Please note, you will not be a client until we have reviewed and accepted your application.
