Mushy spam law's IDEAL for toothless watchdog: Spamhaus slams CAN-SPAM

Let me introduce you to the Telephone Consumer Protection Act.

You don't need to complain to the FCC. Just fill out a couple of forms and trot down to your local small claims court for $500 per instance ($1500 for wilful violations)

The fax/phone spammer AND the company that they spammed for are jointly and severally liable under the TCPA, and even if the spammer isn't traceable, the company who hired them always is (they're usually more than willing to 'fess up who they hired, in order to reduce the fees levied against them if they don't and you get a court order compelling 'em to 'fess up anyway.)
