Going To Court Over Spam

from the sue-'em-all dept

I’m currently looking into taking Tickets.com to court for continually spamming me, despite numerous attempts at unsubscring from their mailing list (which I don’t believe I ever signed up for in the first place). I’ve followed all of their instructions for getting removed from the list, and it hasn’t worked. I have all of their emails, as well as my unsubscribe messages saved. I tried to follow the instructions of the California Attorney General who claims they’re looking for examples of spam to California residents from California companies, but my emails to them bounced (anyone have a better way to contact them?) at the samspade.org email address they supply. So, I find it interesting to read this next article about how it’s difficult to take spammers to court, since it mostly depends on the specific judge you happen to appear in front of. They say that those who want to take spammers to court need to do it on principle, rather than for money. That’s fine with me. I’m more than happy to make an example of a spammer that refuses to take me off their list. If anyone has any other suggestions on ways to convince Tickets.com to take me off their list, I’d like to hear them.

No Subject Given

Check the company’s Web site for press releases or media contacts. Every company will have those posted, thoguh someimtes only at the bottom of the press release. Then you can do one of two things: call the PR person directly (in this case it’s Barry Zuckerman at 310-275-0490) or call your local paper and tell the tech reporter your spam story. The important part here is that either you or the reporter let the PR part of the company know that an article on their less than wonderful behaviour is imminent. As a tech reporter, I have used this technique to help a few people in my time.
