AOL files five anti-spam lawsuits in the E.D. Va.

As reported here and here and here, AOL is suing John Does for sending junk e-mail to AOL addresses. The cases "resulted from about eight million individual spam complaints from subscribers, most of whom used a "Report Spam" feature AOL introduced last fall, the company said on Tuesday." AOL is seeking relief based on allegations "that the defendants are in violation of the Virginia Computer Crimes Act, the Federal Computer Fraud and Abuse Act or the Washington state Commercial Electronic Mail Act."
