Prolific Spammer's Conviction Upheld

The Virginia Supreme Court upheld the nation's first felony conviction for spamming today. The courts ruled that Virginia's anti-spamming law does not violate free-speech rights.

"This is a historic victory in the fight against online crime," state Attorney General Bob McDonnell said in a written statement. "Spam not only clogs e-mail inboxes and destroys productivity; it also defrauds citizens and threatens the online revolution that is so critical to Virginia's economic prosperity."

Personally, I don’t see how it is a “right” to be able to harass me, spam me or send porn links on a service I pay for. Am I wrong? Leave your thoughts in the comment section.
