A fan of the series “Breaking Bad” is suing Apple for the fifth season




Last year we told you about the lawsuit with Apple iTunes by the user from Ohio, who bought a subscription to the series “Breaking Bad.” He is unhappy with the decision to split the cable channel AMC final season into two parts. A young man named Noam Lezebnik believes kupertinovtsy deceived him, as when buying the final of the fifth season of the series, he received only the first 8 episodes: users who have purchased Season Pass, could not free to watch the remaining 8 episodes.


For those who are not familiar with the Season Pass feature in iTunes, recall its essence: the user can purchase the entire season of any series at a slight discount. Summer of 2012, the fifth season of “Breaking Bad” was worth $ 21.99. This is the average price tag for 8 episodes. However, the text of the description already introduced viewers astray: “This Season Pass includes all current and future series.”

AMC advertised the fifth season of “Breaking Bad” as a whole, divided into two parts, insists Lezebnik. As it turned out, the creators of the show decided to stretch the shooting of two years rather than one. Thus, the iTunes Store, there were “five” and “final” season with 8 in each series. The problem is that most people, getting the first half, hoping that the second part will also include in the package. In fact, it turned out differently. Continuation of “Breaking Bad” appeared on iTunes as a separate purchase.

Lawyers for Apple declined to admit guilt company. According to representatives of Apple, the TV series was acquired on behalf of Uncle Lezebnika that allowed his nephew to use his credit card. In addition, in the description of the downloaded TV show was not a word about what the product will contain 16 episodes, lawyers said. So it’s limited only by the alleged negligence bedolagi client.


This week, a judge ruled that the defendant’s guilt must be established trial by jury. However, as noted by our colleagues 9to5Mac, were excluded from the case a few key, from the point of view of the plaintiff side, so that its logical ending of this story may not get.
