MySpace Anti-Spam Machine Whacks Another Mole

MySpace claimed another legal victory yesterday in its offensive against spammers, which ClickZ covered in depth last month

MySpace claimed another legal victory yesterday in its offensive against spammers, which ClickZ covered in depth last month. The latest victory is a $6 million award against Scott Richter’s shady Media Breakaway affiliate marketing network handed down by the American Arbitration Association. The AAA is not a court but rather a private concern that’s commonly involved in business dispute resolution and written into contracts for that purpose. Also under the AAA order, neither Richter nor his affiliates may use the site for commercial purposes.

Somewhat amusingly, the order also commands the so-called “Spam King” to disclose the account and contact info for affiliates involved in spam and phishing attacks on MySpace, “irrespective of whether MySpace in fact discovered a given attack.” Yeah, good luck with that.
