OT: One for the good guys


G'day all, Occasionally the good guys get a foot in the door, just hoping they can go all the way and set an example.
ABC Western Australia "WA firm first to be charged under Spam Act Thursday, 23 June 2005. 18:40 (AEST)Thursday, 23 June 2005. 18:40 (ACST)Thursday, 23 June 2005. 19:40 (AEDT)Thursday, 23 June 2005. 16:40 (AWST)
The first charges ever laid under the Spam Act have been brought against an east Perth company in Western Australia, which is alleged to be a global spammer.
The Australian Communications Authority (ACA) alleges the company sent out at least 56 million unsolicited emails in the year after the Spam Act came into place.
The legislation was introduced in April 2004 and makes sending commercial unsolicited emails illegal.
The authority raided the company's Perth premises in April after members of the public reported receiving unsolicited emails.
The company is listed by international anti-spam watchdog Spamhaus as one of the world's top 200 spammers.
If the company is successfully prosecuted in the Federal Court, it can be fined up to $220,000 for each day it has breached the Act.
It may also have to forfeit profits and compensate victims.
The company's managing director, Wayne Mansfield, denies there has been any breach of the law and says he welcomes the opportunity to prove it in court."
Am following this one with great interest.
All the best John
