US Appeals Court gives ultimatum to the USPS over DVD mailers

without comments

The United States Postal Service was offering Netflix an unfair advantage over its mailed-disc competitors, decided this past week by the U.S. Court of Appeals, ending a years-long legal battle by games-by-mail company GameFly Inc. to try and force the USPS to offer the same benefits it made available to Netflix to all companies.

The unanimous decision by the U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit found itself in agreement with GameFly’s belief that the USPS should either cease to handle the Netflix packages by hand – thereby rescuing them from possible damage at the mechanical hands of the automated sorting systems – or give the same treatment to any other company also sending DVDs, Blu-ray discs or similar through the mail, with a good explanation if such action is not taken immediately.
