The text-messaging service EZ Texting is reportedly suing T-Mobile because they allegedly blocked them over one of their clients offering SMS information on the location of medical marijuana dispensaries!
According to the lawsuit, the EZ client, WeedMaps, is a "a community where medical marijuana patients connect with other patients in their geographic region to freely discuss and review local cannabis co-operatives, dispensaries, medical doctors, and delivery services."
EZ Texting even went as far to stop providing the service, even though it's specifically for people in states where the drug is legal, but T-Mobile still dropped them!
EZ Texting Head Shane Neman says that his business is now in jeapordy, and continues:
"We were told that T-Mobile didn't approve of the Web site, which is totally legal. But we feel this is illegal blocking and that consumers have the right to send and receive any text message of their choosing."
T-Mobile has since released a statement that "the claims in the lawsuit are meritless."
If EZ texting is doing anything illegal, then we personally don't understand why they would be dropped by T-Mobile!
Granted, we can't imagine everyone who uses the application actually needs the product, but at the same time, if they have a license to buy it, how is that the responsibility of T-Mobile OR EZ Texting?
What do U think?? Is the lawsuit valid??
