Californian ISP sues Bob Vila site for spam
Californian ISP Hypertouch is taking home improvement website BobVila.com and its marketing agency to court for alleged violations of America's CAN-SPAM Act.
This is the first legal action under the new federal anti-spam law, although several US ISPs have taken alleged spammers to court under different laws in recent months.
Boston-based BVWebTies, BobVila.com, and its marketing firm, BlueStream Media of Sacramento, California, are both named as defendants in the suit.
