Just a month after MySpace won a huge fine against famed spam king Sanford "Spamford" Wallace, it's now won its lawsuit against another big name spam king: Scott Richter, who it sued a year and a half ago. Richter and his father (who runs the company) are claiming victory in that the fine is only $6 million -- when MySpace had been asking for much more. You may notice that I'm not linking to coverage of this story, since right now it appears that only the Associated Press is writing about it -- and, as you may have heard, the AP has decided it doesn't want bloggers linking to its stories. Fair enough. Update: Here's the News.com coverage.
