California's Tougher Anti-Spam Laws Secure First Victory

The California authorities have secured their first anti-spam victory under the state's tough new laws, it emerged last week.

Although the case against PW Marketing, and its principals Paul Willis and Claudia Griffin, was brought last year under a previous anti-spam law, the enactment of more stringent legislation in the meantime made it easier to sue the firm, and is expected to make it easier to pursue similar cases in the future.

According to reports, PW Marketing, which was charged with making bulk mailings of unsolicited e-mails offering 'how to' guides for would-be spammers, has been prevented under the new law from sending any unsolicited mail, and from accessing other computers without the permission of their owners in order to disguise the actual origin of the spam e-mails.

Both Willis and Griffin have also been prohibited from running or owning a business which operates over the internet for the next 10 years.
