California takes junk e-mailer to court

Date: October 1, 2002
Author: Editorial Staff
QUOTE: The state of California has filed a lawsuit against a marketing company over its use of e-mail to advertise. It's believed to be the first time a state has launched such an action.

ABSTRACT: The amount of spam has increased exponentially, to the point that California is now suing a marketing company over its advertising techniques.  Consumer advocates applaud Califonia's precedent decision, believing this is the only way to curb spammers.
