AOL successfully sues Netvision over unsolicited e-mails.
Internet company America Online has won a civil lawsuit against Netvision Audiotext, a company it accused of sending unsolicited pornographic e-mail to AOL members.
Netvision will now have to pay an undisclosed amount in monetary damages, stop sending the unsolicited e-mail to AOL members through its webmaster affiliates and provide information to AOL during future investigations.
The lawsuit was filed in January 2001 and alleged that Netvision was in violation of the Virginia Computer Crimes Act, the Federal Computer Fraud and Abuse Act and other statutes.
