Great to see Australia using their anti-spam legislation to prosecute one of the major league spammers.
I’m hoping that the NZ anti-spam bill will at least make it into Parliament before the election, and it will get passed into law in early 2006.
Having legislation will not stop spam by any means. However it will be part of the solution (along with education, technical filters etc), and allow action to be taken against NZers who spam, using overseas providers. There are a few of them about, and some are suspected to be pretty major league themselves.
