Bharti Airtel, Idea and Vodafone forbidden from adding new 3G customers in roaming circles

Supreme Court has ruled that Airtel, Vodafone and Idea cannot accept new 3G subscribers in circles where they are offering services through roaming agreements.

Indian government claims that these agreements are illegal as these companies are not allowed to offer 3G services outside the circles where they have acquired the rights for.

These companies have signed on deals with each other to offer 3G services to their customers on roaming.

Supreme Court would give its judgment next month. Until then, these companies can continue to offer 3G services to existing subscribers.

Airtel has been offering 3G services in seven different circles through these agreements.

Virginia Supreme Court rules in favor of spammer

Virginia Supreme Court rules in favor of spammer

Virginia Supreme Court has ruled that the state’s anti-spam laws are in fact unconstitutional as they violate free-speech protections of the First Amendment.

This is a major victory for spammers like Jeremy Jaynes who would benefit from this ruling.

Jeremy Jaynes in fact has his conviction reversed. He is one of the most well known spammers in the world.

He had claimed in courts that the laws were in violation of his free speech protections under the First Amendment.

Justice G. Steven Agee spoke on this judgment that the state’s spam law “is unconstitutionally overbroad on its face because it prohibits the anonymous transmission of all unsolicited bulk e-mails, including those containing political, religious or other speech protected by the First Amendment to the U.S. Constitution.”

Jaynes’ attorney, Thomas M. Wolf added: “In my view, the case was never about Jeremy Jaynes — it was about the First Amendment. The argument was never that there’s a constitutional right to send commercial spam. It was that the government cannot criminalize the sending of noncommercial e-mail for political and religious purposes, and that is what this statute did.”

MailSteward is the ultimate email archiving solution for the Mac. MailSteward archives email in a relational database for easy access and safe backup of all your email. Whether you manage a business, are an independent professional, or just a person with a lot of email, for legal reasons, business reasons, and personal reasons, it is essential to be able to safely archive and easily search your email.

On April 12, 2006 the United States Supreme Court laid down new rules that require companies, government agencies, and public school districts to have systems for retrieving email and other electronic data that might be needed for evidence in a court case. The new rules were updated later that year in December. This means that, if you are in charge of a school district’s, or company’s information technology, you are legally required to set up and maintain a system for archiving email, and for enabling quick and easy access to it.

There are a few products and services available for accomplishing this responsibility. According to an excellent article in Education Week’s Digital Directions magazine, a school district in New Jersey spent over $50,000 on a system for archiving their email. There is a very informative article on the CompuThink website about the new rules, including links to the actual text of the Federal Rules of Civil Procedure.

For smaller school districts and companies the available solutions are likely to be too expensive and complicated for them to implement. MailSteward Pro is a Macintosh-based solution that is easy to set up and maintain, providing automatic archiving and sophisticated searching of large volumes of email.

For organizations that are running their own mail server, MailSteward Pro can be set up to automatically archive all incoming and outgoing email. If the mail server is configured to put copies of all email coming in or going out, into a particular directory, MailSteward Pro can then be configured in the Settings to always import any email that exists in that directory.

For organizations that are not running their own mail server, each individual in the organization can have a copy of MailSteward Pro that is set up to automatically, on a schedule, archive their email into a central MySQL database on a network server.
