AOL Getting Sued for Invasive Ads

By: Going Like Sixty - Published: • References: mediapost
You’ve got subpoenas! A California dude, a lawyer no doubt, is suing AOL for including ads along with his email. He calls them “annoying, confusing, intrusive and misleading.”

Dr. Frank Cecchini says his email should be free of ads because he pays AOL $25 a month. Cecchini is looking to establish a class action lawsuit because that’s where the big bucks can be extracted.

Apparently, Cecchini can’t read very well according to Mediapost.com who says "all paying AOL subscribers can opt out of sending ads in the footers of their e-mails." Stats for Law Suits Over Email Ads Trending: Older & Mild
