Short Take: Washington state implements antispam law

A Washington state law "making it illegal to use false or misleading information when sending an unsolicited, commercial email" has gone into effect, the state attorney general said. The law covers messages originating from or sent to a Washington email address, and those convicted will have to pay $500 to each recipient and $1,000 to each ISP affected within the state. Spammers are required to find out if recipients live in Washington.
