Spammer Suing SpamCop

from the not-this-again dept

A year ago, a group of spammers anonymously teamed up with a lawyer to sue a bunch of anti-spam groups. After those anti-spam groups fought back, the spammers eventually dropped their case. However, now we’ve got a similar situation. Scott Richter, the well known spammer behind OptInRealBig, is now suing IronPort, the folks who bought SpamCop last year. He’s asking for $1 million in damages, saying that SpamCop has damaged his reputation. Has he given any thought to the idea that sending spam may have damaged his reputation? Among the many charges filed against SpamCop, Richter included Negligent Interference with Prospective Economic Advantage, Unfair Competition and Interference with Contractual Relationship.
