Facebook has won a $3 million lawsuit against Power Ventures Inc. and the founder of that company Steve Vachani.  This lawsuit has been dragging on for a while.  Power Ventures and Vachani allegedly violated copyright and spamming laws by sending tens of thousands of unsolicited spam messages on Facebook.

“We are pleased with today’s ruling awarding over $3 million in damages and injunctive relief,” stated Facebook associate general counsel Craig Clark.  “We will continue to enforce our rights against bad actors who seek to harm Facebook and the people who use it.”
