The true winner of this suit:

"As part of the consent decree, Netflix will pay $755,000 to plaintiffs' lawyers who prosecuted the lawsuit"

It's still cheaper than fighting it would have been even if they won, which they probably would have. I can't help but think the only reason they settled was because they were already working on captioning their stuff (80%+ of it is already captioned) and it was just easier and cheaper to settle.

80% doesn't sound right at all, I remember someone doing filtering using instantwatcher and only getting 10% at best which is probably what prompted this suit.
