BBC News reports:
US software giant Microsoft has won a $7m (£3.9m) court settlement from a businessman considered to be one of the world’s biggest senders of spam e-mail.
I really like the quote from Brad Smith, Microsoft chief counsel:
We have now proven that we can take one of the most profitable spammers in the world and separate him from his money
Microsoft states they will use the proceeds to continue their fight against spammers. I believe even Matt will have to tip his hat to Microsoft on this one :)
