被控未能如广告“送你一对翅膀” 能量饮品红牛赔偿1300万美元。三泰虎10月14日译文,据报道,指望能从红牛那里获得10美元赔偿的消费者,可能会深感失望的发现他们收到的支票也许只是该数额的一部分。8月份裁决的集体诉讼,意味着红牛不得不因为其虚假宣传的指控而支付1300多万美元的赔偿。原告因喝下红牛后未长出翅膀,而把红牛告上法庭。多年以来,公司一直在使用一个著名的广告,即“红牛送你一对翅膀”。红牛英国对《独立报》说:“诉讼是在美国提起的,因此只适用于美国消费者。红牛坚称其营销是真实和准确的。”

外文标题:Red Bull awards $13 million to its customers for not giving them wings

Consumers expecting a $10 refund from Red Bull could be bitterly disappointed to find out that the cheque they receive may in fact be a fraction of that amount.

A class action lawsuit settled by Red Bull in August means that the firm has to pay over $13million following claims that it was responsible for “false advertising”.

指望能从红牛那里获得10美元赔偿的消费者,可能会深感失望的发现他们收到的支票也许只是该数额的一部分。

8月份裁决的集体诉讼,意味着红牛不得不因为其虚假宣传的指控而支付1300多万美元的赔偿。

The plaintiff had taken Red Bull to court for failing to give him wings after he drank the product – the company’s adverts have famously used the slogan “Red Bull gives you wings” for some years.

As reported by BevNet, the man suing had said that he had drunk Red Bull since 2002 and accused the firm of being misleading in its claims not only to give wings, but also of its promises to increase concentration and reaction speed, among its other claims.

原告因喝下红牛后未长出翅膀,而把红牛告上法庭。多年以来,公司一直在使用一个著名的广告,即“红牛送你一对翅膀”。

原告起诉称从2002年以来一直喝红牛,提出了公司误导消费者宣传不仅能送你一对翅膀,而且能提高集中力和反应速度等之类的指控。

The US settlement, which Red Bull agreed to so as to “avoid unpredictability and the high costs of litigation”, was thought to result in millions of customers who purchased a can over the last decade receiving either $10 cash or two Red Bull products worth $15.

Those wanting to claim – and it’s only for consumers in the United States – need to fill out a form on http://energydrinksettlement.com/claim by 2 March 2015.

据称,美国的裁决是,过去10来年里购买过一罐红牛的数百万消费者,每人可以得到10美元的赔偿,或者15美元的两罐红牛产品

那些等着起诉的消费者——仅限于美国的消费者——需要在2015年3月2日之前在http://energydrinksettlement.com/claim上填写一个表格。

However, the large influx of people attempting to claim over the last few days has resulted in the website crashing.

The sheer numbers could also affect how much people are eventually awarded, as with the settlement being capped at $13million, it is not thought that the firm would pay every single claimant $10.

然而,过去几天里,大量尝试索赔的消费者的涌入,导致网站奔溃。

索赔人数的数量也会影响消费者最终得到的赔偿数额,因为裁决给出的赔偿被限制在1300万美元。

If fulfilling the individual amounts, it is not clear how many or which claimants they would pay over others.

Red Bull UK told The Independent: “The lawsuit was brought in the US and therefore only applies to US consumers. Red Bull maintains that its marketing is truthful and accurate.”

红牛英国对《独立报》说:“诉讼是在美国提起的,因此只适用于美国消费者。红牛坚称其营销是真实和准确的。”

      • 从事司法工作的都必须通过律师考试,诚然律师中败类不少,但没律师,中国没因地制宜的法规保障资本市场(印度80年代吸引外资不如中国的原因之一,别提工资和手艺还是市场,gdp那时候差不多!),中国改革开放何来成功?说句难听的,无法无天就是文革对中国最大的破坏,从邓、江、胡、习都强调依法治国就看的出来,法治是民主富强必须的前提!

      • 习上台最大的动作是司法改革,成则称霸,败则无法想象。我国历史上第一个统一中原的秦,巅峰的罗马,纵横欧洲的拿破仑,二战的德意志,如今的美国,皆以法强国,如今美国就是因为司法的错误发展才步履维艰!

        • 我国历史上第一个统一中原的秦,巅峰的罗马,纵横欧洲的拿破仑,二战的德意志,如今的美国,皆以法强国,如今美国就是因为司法的错误发展才步履维艰!——这话你能让自己信吗?

    • 其实美国集体诉讼这种制度是很不错的,他们往往有一些法律团体就专门做这个,他会自己收集相关销售资料发邮件给消费者,你收到邮件根本不需要做什么,只需要填一些资料回执回去就能变成“原告”之一,说不定哪天你的账户就会突然收到几十块钱——诚然这些团体在主持诉讼过程是有他的利益所在,但是一般平民也很难以个人身份对一些鸡毛蒜皮的小事来走法律程序,针对喝红牛长翅膀这种坑爹“欺诈”***是奇葩一点,但对一些实际问题还是很有效的,比如最近台湾的馊水油事件,是,受害者千千万,黑心台商也都是一些大品牌,明明白白就在那里,可是个人一般却只能退货解决,吃掉了的也只能自认倒霉,为什么?因为以个人身份提起民事诉讼,在无法证明身体被明显伤害的情况下,根本就不可能主张高于本人购买商品价格太多的赔偿,那么会有多少人会因为那么一点点赔偿费时费力去自主打官司?中国大陆现在一直在试点公益诉讼也是这个道理,不过还不能普及、实用化,范围也比较狭窄,还有很长一段路要走。

  1. 嘿嘿!中国人是“不看***看疗效”,可这位美国人不学文学却学会叫真啦,好样的,红牛应该赔偿人家一对翅膀,应该实践庄严的承诺“让人家飞起来”。中国人也可以索赔嘛——-。

  2. 感觉一些美国人缺钱的时候,就会突发奇想的想出这招赚钱,但是有个前提,就是法官那天心情好 然后又想支持你,你才能赢,不然的话,在美国你惹恼了法官,有理的也会败诉
