Spam Legislation

The Government has released a discussion document on legislation against spam.

InternetNZ has been working with the Government on this issue, and has organised a workshop in Wellington on 24 June 2004 to discuss legislative options.

In my opinion legislation is an important part of the fight against spam. It is not a magic bullet, but along with education, technical solutions, self-regulation and international co-operation for enforcement it will mitigate the problem.

From my observations there are an increasing number of New Zealanders involved in the international spam trade.
