ISPA accepts Ketler settlement over spam offender listing

Tuesday 24 June 2014 | 12:24 CET | News
The Internet Service Providers' Association (ISPA) of South Africa has accepted an offer of ZAR 65,000 from Ketler Investments in full and final settlement of the costs incurred by the ISPA as a result of an ill-fated action brought against it by the online marketing company in June 2012. In June 2013, the South Gauteng High Court dismissed with costs an application by Ketler Presentations to censor ISPA's spam 'Hall of Shame'. Ketler had applied to the High Court in 2012 to try to force ISPA to remove its name from a web page listing South African companies who send out spam.
