The Globe.com

New York, NY: (May-31-07) News Corp.'s popular social network MySpace filed a lawsuit against The Globe.com, alleging that it sent junk mail to its members. MySpace sued the once high-profile community Web site, charging it with violating state and federal anti-junk mail, or anti-spam laws, by sending close to 400,000 unsolicited e-mails to MySpace users from 95 fake accounts. The suit claimed they included the transmission of e-mails with false and misleading information, e-mails without physical address information, and e-mails that were sent automatically to random recipients. Details of the settlement were not disclosed, but a regulatory filing from The Globe.com showed it agreed to pay MySpace $2.55 million to settle the suit. The federal court said MySpace was entitled to $5.5 million in damages. [REUTERS: MYSPACE SPAM]
