Submission + - California Appeals Court Rules that Anonymous Domain Name Service Is Illegal. (wordpress.com) 1

www.sorehands.com writes: "Last week, a California Court of Appeals upheld the trial court decision awarding Dan Balsam $7,000.00 in damages and $81,900 in attorney fees and costs.

The court found that the Defendants use of Godaddy's Domains by Proxy service for the domain names in the headers was sufficient to make the headers deceptive where there was no other identifier in the from lines to identify Trancos as the sender was illegal as a matter of law. In a past case, I successfully argued that these types of domain name anonymity service makes the provider of the service liable as the owner of the domain name.

This case also endorsed the ruling in Hypertouch v. Valueclick, which found that the California law is not preempted by the I-CAN-SPAM Act."
