A complaint was filed today against a film studio for unauthorized text message advertising of upcoming films.
Victor Lozano is suing FoxStore, a Twentieth Century Fox Film Corporation company, for unauthorized text messages, or "wireless spam," such as "GEAR UP 4 THE HILARIOUS ANIMATED FILM ROBOTS ON DVD @FOXSTORE.COM."
The complaint states that "Defendants caused actual harm, not only because consumers were subjected to the aggravation that necessarily accompanies wireless spam, but also because consumers frequently have to pay their cell phone service providers for the receipt of such wireless spam."
The complaint seeks an injunction requiring defendants to cease the wireless spam as well as statutory damages to the class (defined as anyone who has received one of these messages).
