The State of Information Technology Law - 2011: Electronic Mail Regulation, False Advertising and Lanham Act/Standing




1. U.S. District Courts

a. Asis Internet Services v. Subscriberbase Inc. 2010 WL 1267763

The U.S. District Court for the Northern District of California ruled on April 1, 2010 that the CAN-SPAM Act did not preempt state law in the field of “falsity and deception.” The court found that the question of whether the subject line of mass commercial e-mails is deceptive and violates state law is a question of fact for the jury, unless no reasonable trier of fact could conclude otherwise.
