Spam Arrest is a company that sells an anti-spam service. They attempted to sue some spammers and, as has been widely reported, lost badly. This case emphasizes three points that litigious anti-spammers seem not to grasp:
- Under CAN SPAM, a lot of spam is legal.
- Judges hate plaintiffs who try to be too clever, and hate sloppy preparation even more.
- Never, ever, file a spam suit in Seattle.
