T-Mobile Sued Over Blockade of Text Messages - NYTimes.com

Sign of the times

Ez Texting said in its lawsuit that T-Mobile set up a blockade Sept. 10 to keep its phone subscribers from signing up for messages from an Ez Texting client, legalmarijuanadispensary.com, which lists marijuana dispensaries and reviews.

The Web site, also known as WeedMaps, offers information about dispensaries only in states where they are legal, according to the suit. Furthermore, Ez Texting said that it had ended the ad partnership after hearing that T-Mobile objected, and then notified T-Mobile, but that its service was blocked anyway the next day.
