    "A teenager accused of sending millions of e-mails to his employer has
    been cleared because UK laws do not make a crime of what he did. "

    However, its only the view of a magistrate so there is scope for an
    appeal and his ex-employer could take civil action, so its not
    a green light for mailbombers.
