Default Spammer says anti-spam laws violate freedom of speech

Jeremy Jaynes was once one of the top 10 spammers in the entire world.

Jaynes was found guilty and sentenced to 9 years in prison for using aliases and false internet addresses to flood email users with spam.

He says the laws under which he was convicted violate his First Amendment constitutional right of free speech and he has taken it to the Virginia Supreme Court.

Last year in a unanimous ruling, the Virginia Court of Appeals upheld the conviction of Jeremy Jaynes.

The Virginia Supreme Court is expected to issue a ruling this November.

Here are a couple of articles with more details:
