Because Apple began putting a protective coating on iPod Nanos starting in December 2005, you must submit a claim form specifying your Nano's serial number to determine if your unit is covered by the settlement. You have until June 10th 2009 to postmark your claim, but earlier dates apply if you want to exclude yourself or file an objection .
If the settlement is approved, the owner of each eligible iPod Nano sold without a protective slipcase would receive $25. Owners of iPod Nanos sold with a protective slipcase would receive $15 per unit. Learn more at the settlement website's FAQ page.
