Millions of Ticketmaster customers should be receiving a cash payment or discounts on future ticket purchases now that the company's corporate parent, Live Nation Entertainment, has agreed to settle a class-action lawsuit over allegedly deceptive online service and delivery fees.

Although the amount of the refunds or discounts, as well as the number of customers eligible for them were not disclosed, the class action covers all online Ticketmaster purchases made by U.S. residents between October 1999 and May 2010.

Ticketmaster sold more than 95 million tickets via its website in 2002 alone, and the company has set aside more than $20 million to settle the suit.
