News: Appeals Court Decision on Spammer

Just read this story on Business Week's website.

In November of 2005, The State of Virginia (U.S.A.) had successfully prosecuted a spammer, Jeremy Jaynes, of Raleigh, N.C., one of the top 10 spammers in the world when he was arrested. He had been sentenced to serve 9 years in jail!... Then he took it to appeals court. Judge said he could be a free man while waiting for the appeals court decision.

HE HAD BEEN SENDING 10,000,000 UNSOLICITED E-MAILS A DAY USING FALSE REPLY-TO ADDRESSES! Under Virginia law it is not illegal to send unsolicited bulk e-mail... as long as the sender is not trying to mask his identity.

The evidence considered: A mere 53,000 unsolicited e-mails that had been routed through one of AOL's servers in Loudoun County, VA.

The VA appeals court decision: UPHELD! GET TO JAIL FOR NINE YEARS, SPAMMER-BYOTCH!!

So what do you think? Will this successfully upheld conviction make spammers think twice?
