Maybe that's why ISP/client contracts - at least in my admittedly
limited experience - permit the ISP to terminate service for any reason
whatever and be liable for, at most, the last billing period's charges:
to permit them the latitude to cut off abusers without having to go
through the legal system first.  (Of course, taking advantage of that
frivolously is an excellent way to lose their customer base, and I'm
sure they know it.)

If your legal system does not provide for private right of action
against spammers, it needs fixing, and this is exactly why.

It also points up part of why depending on meatspace law to deal with
net offenses is a bad idea.
