Stupid: An error in the shipping system is expensive for the speaker provider Sonos.


In the past few days, there have been reports from US customers who have received more devices than they ordered. Originally, Sonos also issued invoices for this and then sent those affected free return labels. However, this clashed with US consumer protection rules: According to the FTC, you don’t have to pay for unsolicited items and you can keep them “as a gift”.
