AOL caves in to spammers
AOL restores Harris Interactive access Harris Interactive (HPOL: news, msgs) said Tuesday it has dropped federal charges against America Online (AOL: news, msgs). In a lawsuit brought two weeks ago, Harris accused AOL and other Internet service providers of harming its business by blocking Harris' e-mails to registered participants of its opinion surveys. The block was instituted after an e-mail monitoring service, Mail Abuse Prevention System, identified Harris as a voluminous sender of unsolicited, commercial e-mail. AOL restored Harris Interactive's communication capabilities with its respondents who have AOL addresses. Litigation against remaining defendants in the case will continue, Harris said.
