MS & NY highlight non-preempted state spam laws
Microsoft and New York State Attorney General Eliot Spitzer are going after spammers — in state courts.

In other words, they are suing under state laws that are not preempted under the CAN-SPAM Act. News coverage: C|Net, New York Times, Seattle Times.
