The Australian Financial Review reports on a recent case where Jeremy Jaynes pumped out at least 10 million emails a day with the help of 16 high-speed lines, the kind of internet capacity a 1000-strong employee company would need.

Jaynes's business was remarkably lucrative; prosecutors say he grossed up to $US750,000 ($975,000) a month. If you have an email account, the chances are that Jaynes tried to get your attention, pitching software, pornography and work-at-home schemes.

An eight-day trial that ended in his conviction this month shed light on the operations of a 30-year-old former purveyor of physical junk mail who worked with minimal assistance out of a nondescript house.

A state jury in Leesburg, Virginia, has recommended a nine-year prison term in the US's first felony trial of spam purveyors. Sentencing is set for February.

That's not a sentence! That's a gentle patting to shoulder!

Hahahahaha....I agree...

Maybe all other spammers and other people with illegal intensions should think about relocating and starting their "businesses" in Russia, because of much lower costs (even for the lawyers - in case they get caught)..
