More Spammers Threatening To Sue Anti-Spammers
from the misinterpreting-the-law dept
It looks like the various spam laws that help legalize spam are making the spammers extra litigious. Following a lawsuit in the US by a spammer against an anti-spam operation for still block their email, some spammers in the UK are threatening Spamhaus with lawsuits for still having them on their blacklist. The problem is that, just because the law now gives them the permission to spam, it doesn’t mean people aren’t allowed to make their own private efforts to block them. The laws may allow them to send their spam, but there’s nothing in these laws that require people to receive it.
