Citing possible abuses of consumer protection laws, the FTC have targetted San Diego-based D Squared, a company who regularly uses Windows Messenger Service to send spam. The company is to cease spamming immediately, and is to be monitored closely for the next 5 years. They are also banned from using Instant Messenger to spread spam as well.
What I would like to see is basically a ban on spam completely. IMHO, spam is ruining the internet, and if not stopped it will prevent e-mail, instant messaging and lots of other useful technologies from being used because people will be afraid to use them for fear of getting spam.
