GoDaddy has filed a lawsuit (pdf) in an effort to take down one of the groups that it alleges is spamming offers to domain name owners and pretending to be affiliated with the registrar.

If you’ve ever registered a domain name without Whois privacy, you are probably a victim of the defendants or a similar group.

The lawsuit was filed in U.S. Federal District Court in Northern California against Usman Ghaznavi a/k/a Usman Anis, Salman Ghaznavi a/k/a Salman Anis, Silicon Valley Graphic, LLC d/b/a Silicon Valley Graphics (“SVG”), and Does 1 through 50.

It alleges that the defendants undertook a long and sophisticated scheme to spam domain name registrants to offer them logo services, web animations and more. Many of these spam messages pretended to be affiliated with GoDaddy.
