JACKSON – Mississippi residents have until Oct. 16 to submit claims under the state’s settlement of a lawsuit with Microsoft.
The state received $40 million from the settlement, and another $60 million was set aside for people, schools and businesses to make claims.
Attorney General Jim Hood says people can apply for vouchers for rebates on qualifying hardware or software if purchased after June 11, 2009.
To receive vouchers, people must have purchased certain licensed Microsoft software, or a personal computer with certain Microsoft software installed on it, for use in Mississippi between Jan. 1, 1996, and June 11, 2009. Hood says many schools and small businesses may also be eligible.
