Is spreading someone's skype username for spam illegal?

I did it to annoy my friend now I think I might be arrested.

    I would suggest you research what the specific spam laws are in your country.

    However, I don't think you really have that much to worry about, as it can be tough to trace spam back to you if you signed up a friend for it. An accusation is not enough to stand up in court, they need to actually prove it was you which can be tough to do.

    That being said, again I would suggest you research it. Typically unless you're the one distributing the spam rather than signing someone else up for it, then there's usually not anything to worry about.
