Facebook Wins Largest CAN-SPAM Verdict Ever

In the largest award ever in a CAN-SPAM case, social networking site Facebook won an $873 million judgment against two parties--Adam Guerbuez and Atlantis Blue Capital--for spamming members of the social networking site.

But the site says it doesn't expect it will collect much. "It's unlikely that Guerbuez and Atlantis Blue Capital could ever honor the judgment rendered against them," the company's security officer wrote Monday in a blog post about the case.--Wendy Davis
