SEATTLE (Reuters) - Microsoft Corp. filed nine new lawsuits against spammers who send unsolicited e-mail, including an e-mail marketing Web hosting company, the world's largest software maker said on Thursday
With the latest batch of lawsuits, Redmond, Washington-based Microsoft said it is involved in more than 100 legal cases against spammers, including more than 70 lawsuits filed in the United States.

Microsoft has launched a barrage of lawsuits against spammers over the past year in an attempt to curb the spread of unsolicited e-mail pitching everything from get-rich-quick schemes and herbal remedies to penis enlargements.

Microsoft said it filed a lawsuit last week in Washington State's King County Superior Court against Web hosting company National Online Sales and its owner Levon Gillespie, as well as those who used his services, for offering "bulletproof" services for those seeking to send marketing email.

Gillespie was not immediately available for comment and e-mails sent to his company's site were not immediately answered.

Aaron Kornblum, an attorney for Microsoft, said the Web hosting company, which offers space on computers for serving Web pages and sending e-mail, based its operations in China so the sites would not be shut down.

"This is the first action against a Web host catering to spammers," Kornblum said, "they're providing a safe place for spammers to drive customers to."

The other recent lawsuits filed by Microsoft were against spammers sending unsolicited e-mail.

Kornblum said that by taking legal action, Microsoft is "trying to change the economics of spam" by making it costlier for spammers to continue their activities.
