Immediately following his $850 victory against the mobile carrier, Spaccarelli launched a website containing the documents and other pertinent materials that helped him with his suit. At its core, Spaccarelli’s website urges other AT&T subscribers with unlimited data plans to engage in their own lawsuits against the company. And to give him donations.
Not surprisingly, AT&T wants Spaccarelli to shut the hell up already (no, that’s not what was actually said). According to the Associated Press, the mobile carrier wants to work out a settlement with Spaccarelli and is threatening to cut off his service if he doesn’t comply. It’s not exactly crazy on the company’s end, especially considering the fact that legal agreements like this one typically include a non-disclosure clause.
So far, he’s refusing to sit down and talk with the carrier. Spaccarelli said he is not interested in settling and apparently doesn’t care if his service comes to a halt. It wouldn’t be unjustified for AT&T to do this, either, since Spaccarelli has already admitted using his iPhone to provide Internet access for other devices. AT&T’s contract terms specifically state that this is a violation of service.
What do you think: Is Spaccarelli doing the right thing here? Should he take down the documents on his website?
