SAN FRANCISCO – The state of California has filed a lawsuit against a marketing company over its use of e-mail to advertise. It’s believed to be the first time a state has launched such an action. Hopefully not the last!

The Attorney General’s office says PW Marketing violated the state’s statute banning spam and participated in deceptive advertising and unfair business competition. Hope it works, hope it comes to Maryland!
