* MS Sues More Spammers

According to a Reuters story, Microsoft has sued 7 more spammers today.

Microsoft said the defendants, who had yet to be identified in the lawsuit filed in Washington state's King County Superior Court, violated the "CAN-SPAM" federal law requiring e-mail containing readily viewable sexually explicit images to be clearly identified.

The law requires that such e-mails contain the label "SEXUALLY-EXPLICIT:" in the subject line and at the top of e-mail messages.

Redmond, Washington-based Microsoft said those responsible for sending the spam hacked into computers around the world to send their mass e-mailings and did not provide a way for recipients to remove their e-mail addresses from a subscription list.

"Sexually explicit materials and publications for sale in stores are required by law to be covered from view with a brown paper wrapper, and it's important that consumers are protected online in the same way," Nancy Anderson, deputy general counsel at Microsoft, said in statement.
It's an interesting argument... they'll probably have more luck getting the porno spammers convicted, too.
