Has nothing to do with anti-trust. I suspect that the spammer can find a lawyer who is willing to argue the idea that the "safety and security" of the AS701 backbone was not prejudiced by the spammer's actions, unless AS701 is able to show mtrg graphs and the like showing that the spammer was actually sending enough of a volume to swamp their core routers.... And of course, none of the Tier-1's wants to argue in court that one spammer is able to present enough of a load to jeopardize their network stability, when even large DDoS attacks usually aren't much of a blip except near the victim node...
