Spammer Scott Levine Convicted

Slashdot sez:

bani writes “Spammer Scott Levine was convicted of massive data theft from Acxiom Corporation. Prosecutors say his company, the now-defunct Snipermail.com, stole 1.6 billion customer records from Acxiom and sold the data. He faces a maximum of 640 years in prison under the law, though he will likely be sentenced to far less. One spammer down, several million to go?”

640 years would definitely send a message. Even 1/10 of that.
