Blizzard has filed a federal lawsuit against the operators of Peons4hire, a popular gold-selling organization which many of you have no doubt seen advertised. Fortunately, since the release of Blizzard's spam filters, a lot of the most egregious spam has stopped, but it will take a lot more diligence on Blizzard's part to finally put the trade in real money for gold to rest. As many of you know, the latest content patch, along with many great new content additions, contains technical counter-measures designed to combat in-game gold spamming.

It is definitely a step in the right direction.
