Court takes gag off antispam service

Friday, 14 May 2004, 9:51 AM EST

A Northern California District Court judge issued a temporary restraining order last week to prevent SpamCop from interfering with messages sent by alleged junk e-mailer OptInRealBig.com, whose owner and president is Richter.

The San Francisco court dissolved the order late on Tuesday, after SpamCop's owner, IronPort Systems, filed an appeal. IronPort, an e-mail server company, argued that the order breached its first amendment rights and damaged its operations. The court is scheduled to reconvene on May 20.
