According to media reports, a Danish telecoms equipment firm has been fined a record 400,000 Danish Kroner (over $67,000) for sending 1500 unsolicited emails.

The Danish National Consumer Agency brought the case against Aircom Erhverv, claiming that the firm had breached Denmark's marketing practice laws by sending the unsolicited commercial emails.

Denmark's anti-spam laws mean that courts can fine guilty companies 10,000 Danish Kroner (approximately $1700) for up to 100 spam emails sent and a further 100 Kroner (approximately $17) for every spam email beyond 100.

"It's encouraging to see the authorities in Denmark taking action against their home-grown spammers, but a lot of spam comes from outside the European Union," said Graham Cluley, senior technology consultant for Sophos. "There is no evidence that the level of spam hitting users' desktops has reduced since laws targeting spammers have begun to be introduced. The message for companies is simple - invest in a quality anti-spam solution at your email gateway, don't wait with fingers crossed for all the spammers to be caught."
