California Wins First Anti-Spam Lawsuit

Today California Attorney General Bill Lockyer announced that the state won a judgment of $2 million against a spammer (The People of the State of California v. PW Marketing, Santa Clara County Superior Court) in what will be a model for future cases involving unsolicited email. As I posted previously, the state’s new anti-spam law (in effect on January 1, 2004) prohibits an individual or entity, either from within the state or from outside the state, from distributing unsolicited commercial email advertising.
