BLOG sued under CA anti-spam law

Ethan Ackerman posted a rather long analysis of the class action lawsuit filed against over at Eric Goldman’s Technology and Law Blog. Part of the case is related to’s scraping of address books, something I have discussed here before.
The analysis goes through the case step by step and is well worth a read. There are a lot of issues being explored, including the applicability of CAN SPAM to “forward to a friend” email. This case also touches on CAN SPAM and preemption of state laws.
Definitely a post worth reading and a case worth keeping an eye on.
