1403247 story Spamming Gets Expensive in Utah and Ohio 307 Posted by michael on Friday August 02, 2002 @05:21PM from the spiced-ham-still-pretty-cheap-though dept. bradipo writes "A large number of lawsuits have been filed against companies that have not complied with the anti-spam statute in Utah. I'm not sure how this will turn out, but it should be interesting nonetheless." And reader spoton writes "The governor of Ohio has signed into law a bill that allows internet subscribers to sue for up to $50,000 and ISP's for up to $500,000. It allows you to sue for $100 per email + court and lawyer fees incurred. Looks like the cost of spamming is going up."
