Spammers can rejoice. It appears that spamming is protected as a constitutional right. The Virginia Supreme Court has rules:
“…The unanimous ruling Friday reversed the conviction of a man once considered one of the world’s most prolific spammers. The court agreed with Jeremy Jaynes’ claim that the anti-spam law violates free speech protections under the First Amendment.”
Therefore, Jeremy Jaynes was not just spamming and wasting hundreds of people’s hours. He was engaging in free speech. Perhaps this will mean that the inbox will have a bit more activity now from others who want to exercise their constitutional rights.
