    US spammer gets a year in the can
    ISP won a $15.4m judgment against Florida resident Craig Brockwell and his company, BC Alliance, on Can-Spam charges. According to that suit, Brockwell sent hundreds of thousands of unsolicited emails advertising discounted inkjet printer cartridges. The ruling, issued last month, also prevents Brockwell and his company from illegally spamming any internet user, regardless of the ISP they use.
    The cases were among a handful of claims EarthLink filed earlier this year against alleged spammers in California, Florida, Nevada and Washington state. The company has won a number of other spam-related suits, including one against the so-called Alabama spammers in January.
    Larry Slovensky, an assistant general counsel for EarthLink, said in a statement: ” these cases represent more examples of how civil litigation and legal action can put spammers out of business.”
    When President Bush signed the Can-Spam Act nearly two years ago, critics were sceptical that it would stem the rising tide of junk email landing in people’s inboxes. But a recent study indicates US computers are relaying far fewer spam messages than they did a year ago. The authors of the report, put out by security software company Sophos, attributed the decline to new legislation and jail sentences for spammers.
