“Spam King” Arrested

Oh, frabjous day… the Seattle Post-Intelligencer reports on the arrest of Robert Soloway in Seattle. With millions lost in civil cases, Soloway is now facing criminal charges concerning his spamming activities.

One commenter asserted out in response to the article there, though, that the criminality stemmed from Soloway’s fraudulent “business services” angle, and not from the simple fact that he was victimizing millions of people with his billions of spam emails each day. It seems like we ought to set about providing some legal protection on that score, too.
