Spam victim Nigel Roberts has won a landmark victory, successfully suing Media Logistics UK who had spammed him with junk mail. Under new EU laws companies can be sued for sending unwanted e-mails.
Mr Roberts, who runs an internet business was paid Â£270 in an out of court settlement. He had limited his claim to under Â£300 so that he could qualify to file as a small claim. He says "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."
