EarthLink wins vs. Cyber Promotions

Published on .

Internet access provider EarthLink Network won a lawsuit filed in the Los Angeles Superior Court that ultimately prevents Cyber Promotions, a distributor of commercial e-mail, from sending or transmitting its messages through EarthLink's system or to its members. In the lawsuit, EarthLink sought both injunctive relief and monetary damages in relation to Cyber Promotions' bombardment of EarthLink's members with unsolicited e-mail ads. "This is a landmark victory in EarthLink's mission to protect the rights of our members and maintain a spam-free Internet," said Charles Betty, president and CEO of EarthLink Network.
