Chris Legeros reporting for Kiro 7 News in Seattle:

“Yellow pages” publishers may sue the city of Seattle, because of an ordinance that passed Monday. The ordinance requires yellow pages publishers to be licensed, penalizes publishers up to $125 per book if they’re delivered to people who don’t want them and requires the industry to pay for recycling all the paper it distributes.

and later on:

Yellow pages publishers also believe the ordinance is a violation of their right to free speech and they are considering a lawsuit to challenge it.

Let me respond by saying good job to Seattle as these books are a huge waste and secondly to the above complaining about a violation to their rights: I am sure spammers feel the same way, you guys should get together and have a conference or something.
