  1. San Francisco (CA) - Scott Richter, President of Email marketing firm OptinRealBig.com, has filed suit against Ironport, which runs the anti-spam website Spamcop. According to Richter, Spamcop's initiatives have damaged the reputation of his company & forces ISPs to terminate contractual agreements with OptinRealBig.com & its upstream providers.

    "We are going to send a message," said Richter in an email interview with Tom's Hardware Guide. The complaint filed alleges "Tortuous Interference with Contract, Interference with Contractual Relationship, Intentional Interference with Prospective Economic Advantage, Negligent Interference with Prospective Economic Advantage, Unfair Competition, Trade Libel & asked the Court for Injunctive Relief." Richter is asking for $1 million in damages.

    This is flat-out BS IMHO. People need to get behind this anti-spam group in a big way....financially as well if need be.
