I'd say two ways: a) AOL started logging for certain keywords through their SMTP servers or something along that way b) there is always a trail one way or another. With over 100,000 complaints, I suspect that there would have been some intelligent ones who did some tracing and such.
In reality, IMHO, there is always a trail to follow. It's just a question of how hard it is to follow and resources available.

I agree. If they want you badly enough, they will find you.

Just think like the IRS guys?
There is no money in spamming unless someone sells a product? so just find out who is making money (being advertised) and take them into a "quiet corner"
"Well now my friend, your falsified tax returns for the last x years will get you 10 in the Federal Pen.....perhaps you would like a visit, pick your cell and meet Bubba, your affectionate cell mate?"
You generally get the information you require?
I have no idea about your laws, but over here, hiring the spammer is as big or worse a crime than the spamming itself.
just my £0.02

I hope it will actually stand..I would be willing to bet there is some clever lawyer that is willing to represent them pro-bono, just for the opportunity to shoot holes in the new law.
