Whose lifetime is it anyway?

siriusxmlifetimeA class action lawsuit is being mounted against Sirius XM Radio over the definition of “lifetime subscriptions.” According to the court filing, “Sirius XM systematically advertised and sold lifetime subscriptions to consumers by leading consumers to believe that such lifetime subscriptions were for the lifetime of the consumer. However, when consumers have tried to transfer their lifetime subscriptions from one receiver to another or from one automobile to another, Defendant has taken the position that the ‘lifetime’ referred to is not the lifetime of the purchasing consumer, but the lifetime of the receiver or automobile.”
