TORONTO - A Canadian man accused of being one of the world\'s biggest spammers has agreed to stop sending the junk messages and plans to educate children about the dangers of the Internet, a newspaper reported Tuesday.
In March, Yahoo! Inc. sued Eric Head, his father and brother as part of a worldwide industry crackdown on hundreds of people sending unsolicited e-mail, or spam.
Yahoo alleged the three men ran a huge spamming operation and sent more than 94 million e-mails in one month alone to users of Yahoo\'s e-mail service.
The three have settled the lawsuit and agreed to pay Yahoo at least $100,000, Toronto\'s Globe and Mail reported in Tuesday\'s editions. The exact amount is confidential, but a lawyer for the family told the newspaper it was \"six figures.\"
Although the lawsuit named all three men, the allegations centered on Eric Head, 25, who ran a bulk e-mail business from the family\'s home in Kitchener, Ontario.
Head has shut down his operation, called Gold Disk Canada, and become a drummer in a rock band.
\"Eric is out of business,\" said Huey Cotton, a Los Angeles lawyer who represented the men. \"He\'s going to play in a band and find a way to use his knowledge to help protect kids on the Internet.\"
In a statement, Head expressed regret.
\"I urge everyone who is involved in the commercial bulk e-mail business to cease all operations unless and until they are completely compliant with the requirements of the new United States anti-spam laws.\"
The settlement was reached several weeks ago and approved by a judge on Thursday.
Cotton said the agreement is not an admission of wrongdoing and the three men neither admit nor deny Yahoo\'s allegations. A lawyer for Yahoo confirmed the settlement but declined further comment.
Our staff usually goes thru our logs to see whats been happening on a daily basis. We\'ve been noticing alot of attempts by various networks/SPAMMERS to try their best to infiltrate our system. To read an example of what we are talking about, please read More...
After monitoring the traffic for awhile, I decided it was time to block them manually before they could start a DOS attack on our network. It turns out they were a known spammer trying to send SPAM thru out our network. And they were not happy that they got pinched in the beginning of there mail run. To bad, to sad. They never had a fighting chance. Anyways, during this whole time, they decided to bring in some offshore mail servers to send there UCEs. There again, they were blocked before they even got started. As far as this Administrator is concerned, stop wasting your time and the bandwith you suck up. Your trash-mail is not worth letting thru.
On December 16, 2003, President Bush signed into law the Controlling the Assault of Non-Solicited Pornography and Marketing Act of 2003 (CAN-SPAM Act), which establishes a framework of administrative, civil, and criminal tools to help America's consumers, businesses, and families combat unsolicited commercial e-mail, known as spam.
FTC Chair Tim Muris Hosts Ask the White House. Read the transcript. The new law is a pro-consumer measure that allows consumers to choose to stop further unsolicited spam from a sender. It also provides a protection against spam containing unmarked sexually-oriented or pornographic material.
