Spammers fined £440,000

The Information Commissioner's Office has just fined two spammers £440,000

This is very good news, of course. At last, there's a significant downside to spamming in the UK. The spammers breached the Privacy and Electronic Communications Regulations 2003 - that's the one that I always tell spammers about.

Here's how to complain to the ICO . I've just sent in a complaint about a company selling children's clothing. I called the company to complain, but they refused to tell me who they bought their spamming list from, so I've passed this on to the ICO.
