Virginia High Court Strike Down Anti-Spam Law
In 2004 Jeremy Jaynes was convicted under Virginia’s Anti-Spam law for sending 10 million spam emails through AOL servers located in Virginia.
Virginia’s Supreme Court has overturned that conviction and struck down the Anti-spam law.
“The court unanimously agreed with Jeremy Jaynes’ argument that the law violates the free-speech protections of the First Amendment because it does not just restrict commercial e-mails.”
The weak Federal CAN-SPAM law that has done nothing to stop spam remains in effect.
Here is a link to the ruling.
