Small victory against spammers

Two years ago I filed a complaint against one of the worst Czech spammers, “Hotel u Lípy”. Then nothing happened and I didn’t expect too much, reading stories that those spammers exploit a loophole in Czech antispam law.

To my surprise I’ve received an answer from The Office for Personal Data Protection today. They notify me that they made inspection at the spammer’s company and found breakage of the law by sending a business e-mail message without previous agreement of the recipient. As the result they punished the spammer with a financial penalty.

Well, I don’t know whether the spammer’s business has been punished significantly or not. But dealing with legal offices is definitely no pleasant thing and they would risk worse problems if they continued their spamming activities. And I’m glad enforcement of the antispam law actually works. Good news!
