Speaking of Junk E-mail - Microsoft wins a legal victory against spam

Microsoft has one a $7,000,000US settlement from Scott Richter, dubbed the King of Spam by some. Though, I would like to dub him something else entirely. This is the result of a nearly two year legal battle against this punk who was at one time responsibile for sending nearly 40,000,000 spam messages per year. Will this settlement stop spammers? No. But, I think it is a good start and it surely sets a good legal precendent.
