Australia has convicted its first spammer. By coincidence I was in Perth when the case was being heard. I didn’t have time to go to the court but got daily reports back from the enforcement agency head.
Spam sourced from Australia has dropped from around 7% to almost 0% since their anti-spam law was passed. This is the only business which refused to comply with the new law.
NZ’s anti-spam law is currently with the Commerce Committee and will be reported back to the House in June.
