+ - Can anti-spamming laws ever be enforced?

Submitted by paulraps
paulraps writes: In the three years since Sweden made spamming a criminal offence, the authority set up to enforce the law has received 72,121 complaints, reports The Local. The result of investigations into these cases was one single prosecution. And that was dropped. The ratio of 72,121:1:0 begs the question — how can legislation against spammers ever be enforced?
