Yesmail Gets Restraining Order Against MAPS Blacklist
By Patricia Odell, Richard H. Levey
Yesmail.com, a Chicago-based permission marketer, won
a temporary restraining order Thursday against Mail
Abuse Prevention System LLC (MAPS) in the first legal
challenge to the Redwood, CA-based group.
Issued by the Northern District Court of Illinois
(Eastern Division), the order blocks MAPS from
adding yesmail to its list of alleged spammers. It
is good through Aug. 2. A hearing has been
scheduled for July 18.
Several firms have found their Web sites shut down
and their e-mails blocked after being listed
on MAPS? Realtime Blackhole List (RBL). The RBL,
which lists more than 3,000 alleged
spammers, is subscribed to by 20,000 Internet
service providers, corporations, government
agencies and individuals.
In a complaint filed on Thursday, yesmail alleged
that MAPS had announced its intent to include
yesmail on the RBL.

of a window manager was added as an afterthought, and it shows.)"
