Last week we reported that a small firm run by two college kids that was sending Microsoft Messenger pop-up spam advertising software to stop such pop-up spam was fighting back against the FTC's claims that they were doing high tech extortion. As despicable as the practice is, I mentioned that they might have a case. It looks like a judge has agreed, and is refusing to grant an injunction against the firm, meaning that they can keep on spamming, at least until the trial occurs. Of course, the company might still lose the case. Either way, you would hope they would realize that their tactics of annoying their potential customers isn't the smartest way to go about offering a product.
