America Online, the world's largest online service, is suing three marketing companies for deluging its subscribers with unsolicited bulk email.
AOL is seeking unspecified damages against the firms for the 'spamming'. It claims that three companies - IMS, Gulf Coast Marketing and TSF - have sent tens of thousands of unwanted emails to AOL users. AOL said it has already won a similar suit against another company, obtaining a court order that barred Over the Air Equipment from sending unsolicited email to AOL subscribers.
