They are likely violating policy of their ISP in regarding to sending unsolicitied advertisement (if that is what it is), look at whichis anybody else receiving this spam when they advertise a new AS nowadays?

mail server was used to send this email and complain.
What they appear to have done is look at who is announcing what ip block
and in that case it is 22.214.171.124/24. BGP table is free for use for
whatever needs, so no violation there. But they do appear to have looked
in apnic whois to find contact person afterwards. APNIC whois has what
they call "copyright terms" at http://www.apnic.net/db/dbcopyright.html
"...Any use of this material to target advertising or similar activities are explicitly forbidden and will be prosecuted. APNIC requests to be notified of any such activities or suspicions thereof".
As far as I know the address for complaints like this at APNIC is
Unfortunetly if they sent the same adveritsement to somebody who has ip
block in ARIN whois, they would not be violating any policy because ARIN
it several years back...
