Running a fake Yahoo! Lottery Email Scam may have seemed like a cool idea back in 2008, but a judge has found that the Spammers were in breach of Trademark infringement and in violation of the Can-Spam Act too, hence the fine of $583 and Yahoo! were awarded costs too resulting in the $610 amount!
According to Christian Dowell, who is the legal director of Global Brand Protection, said;
“Yahoo! takes the protection if its users and its brand very seriously,”
“Our ultimate goal is to ensure that users continue to trust Yahoo! as the leading U.S. email provider.”
