Interesting… seems that there is a growing opportunity to make an income suing companies that send opt-out email regardless of whether they cause issues with the recipient or not.
I located this article last night about a person in the US that seems to be doing quite well for himself however companies are fighting back (and so they should).
Below is the first two paragraphs from the article. I personally don’t think this will happen in New Zealand as the NZ Anti SPAM law does not allow opt-out emails.
“A U.S. District Court has ordered a Washington state man who sued spammers under the CAN-SPAM Act and lost his case to pay the legal fees of the defendants.
In its decision released last week, the U.S. District Court for the Western District of Washington at Seattle ordered the plaintiff, James Gordon, owner of Omni Innovations LLC, to pay US$111,440 to Virtumundo Inc. in Overland Park, Kan.”
