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.
