Israel has gotten fed up with spam. Anyone who sends out messages without receiving the recipient's consent can now be slapped with a big fine. Last June, a new law gave solicitors six months to ask prospective clients if they wanted to receive unsolicited messages. The deadline expired Monday. The communications ministry says violators can be sued for $250 for every unsolicited message. Pestered Israelis can go to court five times a year and each time file up to 30 claims against a single company. The law applies to solicitations by text message, email and telephone. It is modeled after similar European statues.
