Sanford Wallace banned from MySpace

In March, I reported that Sanford Wallace was being sued by MySpace for — what else — spamming.

Today, the U.K. Register reports that the judge has banned Sanford Wallace and his agents from accessing MySpace in any way. No mention is made in the Register article of any damages — has Wallace effectively gotten away with it?

Interesting point brought up in the article: Even after he was sued, Wallace sent another 110,000 messages from 76,200 hijacked accounts.

...a federal judge who ruled the social networking site is likely to prevail in a lawsuit...

In other words, this is a preliminary ruling aiming at stopping Wallace from further hurting MySpace until the case is heard.

Damages can't be considered until the case has been heard in full and he's actually lost the case.
