Here is another idea: for spam senders pointing to servers under 
jurisdiction, size the server and check all incoming requests
from users - if they try to do a deal, prosecute a few of them
in the public for supporting a crime. (And of course if possible
get hold of the spammers too). Sure there would be corner cases
where for example a competitor might try to discredit a company,
but in most cases, cui bono should be the spammer after all.
