Facebook Wins $873M Judgment Against Spammer

Social networking site Facebook has won their court case against a Canadian man who relentlessly spammed the site with sexually explicit messages.  The court awarded the company over $800 Million in damages, about three times Facebook’s annual revenues.  The company reassures users that it will do everything in it’s power to keep the site spam free and hopes this judgement sends a message to spammers.  The defendant has been hard to locate since the suit was filed and it may be a bit difficult to collect on the judgement.
