New Ohio Anti-Spam Law

Here's the link: http://www.legislature.state.oh.us/bills.cfm?ID=125_HB_383

Here's the preamble to it:

To amend section 2923.01 and to enact section 2913.421 of the Revised Code to prohibit a person from transmitting multiple commercial electronic mail messages, falsifying routing information in those messages, falsifying registration information for multiple electronic mail accounts, or falsifying the right to use five or more internet protocol addresses, and to prohibit unauthorized access to a computer to transmit multiple commercial electronic mail messages.

Penalties? Could be up to 6 months in prison, fines up to $25,000. Also a possibility of a $2-8 fine for each spam e-mail. Now that could add up in a hurry.
