Businessman Wins e-mail spam case

As you may be aware, lsblogs does not just list blogs, it also lists sites related to blogging, including forums that discuss blogging.  One site I visit frequently, which is not just about blogging, is the cre8asite forums

Today, I noticed a interesting thread - someone took on a spammer and won compensation from the firm that spammed him. Whilst the amount won is not enough to retire on, its certainly a interesting victory, and one that may open the floodgates for lots of other people to take on the spammers.

If spammers start getting hit where it hurts them the most, financially, then perhaps, just perhaps, one day spam may be a thing of the past.

Cre8asite Forums -> Businessman wins e-mail spam case

A businessman has won what is believed to be the first victory of its kind by claiming damages from a company which sent him e-mail spam.

Nigel Roberts, who lives in Alderney in the Channel Islands, took action against Media Logistics UK over junk e-mails in his personal account.

Under new European laws, companies can be sued for sending unwanted e-mails.

The Stirlingshire-based firm has agreed to pay £270 compensation to Mr Roberts, who runs an internet business.

‘Tiny victory’……
