Jeff Roberts reports:

Popular video site Metacafe has joined Quantcast, Interclick and a host of other firms in settling a lawsuit over its use of Flash “super-cookies” – tracking tools that regenerate even after internet users clear their browser. But despite an offer of $250 to compensate the plaintiffs, no one should hold their breath about getting paid.

In a proposed settlement filed on Friday in Brooklyn federal court, Metacafe said it would pay a maximum of $250 to consumers for reasonable expenses they incurred in trying to remove the cookies.
