Short Take: Spammer stopped from forging email addresses

A Texas state judge has forbidden a California college student from forging other people's email addresses in spam he sends out, according to Newsbytes. The plaintiff in the case alleged that the defendant used her personal domain as a return address for the spam, causing thousands of return messages to clog her server. The judge ruled that the defendant may not use anyone's email address in his bulk mailings without first obtaining their permission.
