Default 4 year jail term for spammer

Top Spammer Sentenced to Nearly Four Years - Yahoo! News

Chalk one up for the good guys!!!!

May seem like a drop in the bucket, but at least it sends a message that folks living within the reach of the north american legal system can and will pay a hefty price.

"Jaynes, for example, had millions of AOL e-mail addresses that were stolen from the ISP (Internet service provider), and he was earning as much as US$700,000 a month from his activities, Troberman said. By comparison, the government figured conservatively that Soloway earned more than $700,000 in three years"

Oh only 700,000 in three years, great defence

Being a father of a 2yr old son, its heartbreaking to hear when these SOB kill their own children. Children are innocent. If he wanted to off himself, at least have the courage to give your children a relative or something, you shouldn't punish them for your crimes.

$ 700,000, man I'm picked the wrong career choice!

If he really earned $700,000 a month spamming by e-mail then it goes to show how many SUCKERS are out there - what the hell did he sell for that much ? Look at all the money potential for people who want to make legitimate money online, t his ruins business for honest companies, much like telemarketing which is a major epidemic in the US and in Canada. Too many suckers out there, 4 years is too little for that MF ! :)
