Spam Payback

Businessman, Nigel Roberts, who administers domain names for the Channel Islands, took action against Scotland-based Media Logistics UK after one too many junk e-mails landed on top of the pile in his inbox.

Under new European laws, companies can be sued for sending unwanted e-mails. Following County Court action, Media Logistics had to hand over £300 to Mr Roberts for spam that promoted a contract car firm and a fax broadcasting business.

Mr Roberts said he had limited his claim to a maximum of £300 in order to qualify to file it as a small claim. He said: "This may be a tiny victory, but perhaps now spammers will begin to realise that people don't have to put up with their e-mail inboxes being filled with unwanted junk."
