Victory for Anti-Spammer! (0 Comments) (link)
 Monday, 14-October-2002  21:23:39 (GMT +10) - by Agg

Some excellent news about the Australian spam-fighter and the court case against him - it's been thrown out by a West Australian court. Congrats to Joey, who is also a heavy-hitter in our SETI@Home Team. More info on this ruling here. There's a few websites dedicated to this battle - the only one which seems to be updated so far is this one. I imagine everyone else is partying. :) Thanks to everyone who sent in info about this.

The original complaint was that Joey made unfounded complaints that t3Direct was sending bulk email. It seems Mansfield shot himself in the foot with his own evidence in which he stated "the plaintiff does not deny that they do send bulk email as part of their business". The court noted that if this is the case, Joey's complaint was hardly unfounded.
