    Company Settles Over Porn Spam From Affiliates
    An adult Web site whose affiliates sent pornography-related spam to unsuspecting recipients will pay US$413,000 to settle a complaint from the U.S. Federal Trade Commission.

    Under the settlement, Cyberheat is prohibited from spam e-mail marketing and is required to monitor its affiliates to ensure they are complying with the law, the FTC said.

    Interesting to see the merchant being held responsible.

    Unfortunately, rulings like this only affect U.S. spammers and merchants. Based on the "copy" I see on most of the SPAM I get, the SPAM does not originate in the U.S.
