While people may have different opinions regarding file sharing and copyright battles, pretty much everyone agrees that spam is nothing but trouble. Thus, it's only good news to hear when another spammer gets taken out. Recently, U.S. courts ruled that a company based in Las Vegas was breaking the law in sending out oodles of spam, and has ordered the owner to pay $2.6 million
as compensation. On top of that, due to the company violating the CAN-SPAM act along with false advertising, their spamming days are over and the company has been ordered to cease said advertisement. Another spammer may just pop up in its place, but at least there's something being done to enforce these laws and authorities are taking things more seriously.
