In Kleffman v. Vonage Holdings Corp., the Court addressed a legal question from the Ninth Circuit regarding the application of Business and Professions Code §17529.5(a)(2) to spam e-mails that were being sent from multiple domain names to avoid spam filters. While this statute bars spam which “contains or is accompanied by falsified, misrepresented, or forged header information” in an effort to curtail an explosion of spam traffic, the Court held that merely using multiple domain names did not violate this restriction, making the statute inapplicable unless the e-mail ran afoul of its restriction for some other reason.
