Vi@gr@ Sold h^r^: Is your annoyance our problem? : An article from: Review - Institute of Public Affairs
by Chris Berg
By the end of the year, the number of emails sent worldwide is predicted to reach 136 billion per day. An estimated 64% of these, however, are spam -- unsolicited emails sent in bulk, usually of a commercial nature. In response, governments around the world have stepped in to try to curb the evil of spam. The Australian Spam Act 2003 goes much further -- making it illegal to send unsolicited commercial electronic messages that have an Australian link, with the usual exemptions for charities, political parties, and the government. Modeled on the US system, the proposed Australian Do-Not-Call list is an opt-in list for those who do not wish to receive commercial telemarketing on their home phone. Any legislation to tackle spyware would have little effect on the major sources of the problem. As Andrew Grossman of the Heritage Foundation says, no set of regulations, no matter how finely detailed, would have much of an effect.
