Internet Security Threat Report 2014

Kourosh Hamidi, who runs employee ginger group Face Intel, has forced the biggest chip company in the world to drop two charges it made against him. Intel's lawyers, Morrison & Foster, moved earlier this week to strike two of their claims against Hamidi for financial damages and for causing a nuisance. Now, Intel is pinning hopes of winning the case on the grounds of "email trespass", a concept that has not really had an airing in the cosmos so far. Intel claims that the very act of sending emails to its employees, even given that it has now conceded that it is not a nuisance, is equivalent to Hamidi stalking the spacious halls of its offices in Satan Clara. A decision is likely very soon. ® See also Hamidi forces Intel to argue Spam case
