December 7 2007

A resident of Denver, Min Kim, convicted of sending spam, could be sentenced to a longer prison term. Instead of the previously announced 24 - 30 Min Kim can spend in prison from 30 to 37 months. This "increment" spammer may receive for outstanding financial success in his profession, which is a criminal offense under the law CAN-SPAM. To increase the sentence insists District Judge Lewis Bebkok. As an argument to increase the term of the prosecution cites the fact that ISPs have suffered more damage by introducing new tools to combat spam. Lawyers argued that the measures antispamerskie providers anyway take, and the amount of spam their client - a mere drop in the ocean. However, the judge more convinced by the prosecution. Since the spammer for several years has earned quite a large sum - $ 250 thousand, and thus caused great damage, therefore, necessary to reflect and to punish the judge said. It is not excluded that in the future spammers will be given time, depending on their income earned on spam.
