Facebook Wins Damages in Spam Case - WSJ.com

Facebook found a revenue model – but good luck collecting…

Facebook said Thursday a California court has awarded the social networking Web site $711 million in damages in an anti-spam case against Internet marketer Sanford Wallace.

Facebook sued Mr. Wallace for allegedly accessing users' accounts without their permission and sending phony posts and messages. The company said on its blog that in addition to the damage award, the San Jose, Calif., court referred Mr. Wallace to the U.S. Attorney's office for prosecution for criminal contempt of court—meaning he could face jail time.
