UK Anti-SPAM Policies Failing

Posted: 25th Jul, 2005 By: MarkJ
The latest annual report from the Office of the Information Commissioner (ICO) notes how neither ISP's nor government laws have done enough to tackle junk e-mail (SPAM):

The report revealed that no legal action was taken in relation to the 600 complaints which it received during the past 12 months. The ICO claimed that it lacks the necessary powers successfully to pursue and prosecute spammers.

It pointed out that current Enforcement Notices are easy to appeal against, and trigger a lengthy Information Tribunal procedure during which spammers are free to continue their activities.


Further annoyance has been vented in the report towards ISP's that fail to provide anti-SPAM protection.

Typically such filters can remove legitimate e-mail as well, although that shouldn't be stopping providers offering an 'option'. More @ VNUNet.
