Subject: Fwd: [Booknews] See this item at Amazon.com
I received the following unsolicited commercial email, aka spam, which is advertising a book being sold on your website. The spam includes images hosted on your website, including your trademarked logo; and a footer consisting of the Amazon postal address and web url. Combined these give the impression that Amazon endorses the sending of this spam.
I trust that you will engage in discussions with the publisher of this book and make them understand that spamming and abusing your trademarks to do so are unacceptable.

(Alas, firstname.lastname@example.org turns out to bounce, so I've sent it to customer services instead. Will anyone read it? Who knows, but it was still a joy to write.)
