Facebook was awarded $711 million in a judgment Thursday against self-described "spam king" Sanford Wallace.
Judge Jeremy Fogel of the U.S. District Court of the Northern District of California granted Facebook's application for a default judgment against Wallace for violating the Can-Spam Act, which bans "false and misleading" marketing e-mails. Fogel also found that Wallace "willfully violated" a temporary restraining order and preliminary injunction issued in the case and referred the matter to the U.S. Attorney's Office for prosecution of criminal contempt.
"The record demonstrates that Wallace willfully violated the statutes in question with blatant disregard for the rights of Facebook and the thousands of Facebook users whose accounts were compromised by his conduct," Fogel wrote in his judgment order, which also permanently prohibits Wallace from accessing the Facebook Web site or creating a Facebook account, among other restrictions.
Facebook said the order should serve as a strong deterrent against spammers.
swa66 - Can't do any worse than the Indonesians who, after capturing the Bali bombers, jailed them and "allowed" them to have mobiles and lap tops so they could, yes, plan the next terrorist attacks from their jail cells.
