Australian spammer fined $5.5 million
Not too shabby for 12 months of misbehaviour...
"A PERTH-based company has been fined $5.5 million for sending millions of unsolicited emails, with a judge labelling the spam annoying, costly to combat, and a threat to the internet.
It is the first time an Australian company has been fined under the federal Government's spam laws, introduced in April 2004."
