Idiot Federal court awarded Facebook $360,500,000 Judgement

In a January 27, 2011 update on the facebook security pages, they announced "a federal court awarded Facebook $360,500,000 in statutory damages and issued a permanent injunction kicking a known spammer, Philip Porembski, off Facebook for good."
Sophos reports Porembski, who ran a firm called PP Web Services, was alleged to have obtained the login details of at least 116,000 Facebook users, and sent more than 7.2 million spam messages to victims' online friends. Some of the spam messages directed users to phishing websites that stole usernames and passwords, while others werer affiliate links.
Facebook claimed that it received more than 8000 complaints from users as a result of the spam campaign, and more than 4500 users had deactivated their accounts.

This is a followup of an announcement of three separate complaints, in which Facebook allege that Steven Richter, Jason Swan, and Max Bounty, Inc. used Facebook to offer enticing, but non-existent products and services.
They go to review how Facebook holds the record for the two largest judgments in the history of the CAN-SPAM Act - an $873 million judgment against Adam Guerbuez and Atlantis Blue Capital and a $711 million judgment against Sanford Wallace.

There's a certain prestige in having a $300 million judgement brought against you, rather than just everything you own.

Shit like this is so fucking stupid. I don't understand the American legal system so perhaps someone can explain it, but why try to make someone, who's probably not got that much, pay a massive company a sum they could never ever afford? It's just stupid.

If you go destroy a Ferrari and suppose the repairs cost $200k for instance, you can't make an excuse that your annual income is just $40k. You still need to bear the burden since the fault is yours!

Good luck collecting that judgment. Hell, the Zuck and friends probably spent more in legal fees than they will realistically be able to recover.

Because it makes headlines. What will happen is they'll settle for a much smaller amount and everyone will walk away and never talk about it again.

Thats a nice little sum there for facebook. Mark can buy new socks or something like that

Who said that they dont have a business model Clearly their business model is suing people and getting ridiculous sums of money. (Y)

P.S and yeah, I do know they are never seeing this money...
