$1 Billion Award in Spam Lawsuit

I hate spam, too, but this is startling:
A federal judge has awarded a Clinton Internet service provider over $1 billion in a lawsuit against companies that used the service provider's equipment to send spam, the Quad-Cities Times reported Saturday.

My personal domain is inundated with over 2000 pieces of spam per 24 hour period. Outlook 2003's spam filter does an amazingly good job snagging all but about 50 pieces every 24 hours. So, I've good reason to hate spam. $1 Billion verdict? That ought to send some shock waves. Net result? Spammers will do their ill from beyond the boundaries of the US.
