LINX Backs UK ISPs - Warns Gov MPs

Posted: 04th Jul, 2003 By: MarkJ
The London Internet Exchange (LINX) has warned government MPs not to force anti-SPAM (junk e-mail) measures upon ISPs. It believes that such a move would be counter productive and erode freedom:

It maintains that whatever technology the law forces ISPs to fit will be quickly outwitted by spammers and that anti-spam filtering will stop delivery of genuine emails.

Linx said it is also concerned that forcing ISPs to install anti-spam filtering will "erode freedom of choice for internet users".

Malcolm Hutty, regulation officer at Linx, told the Inquiry: "Spam evolves. As each new technique is developed to identify and block spam automatically, spammers develop new means of frustrating the filters."

We'd have to agree with Web-User's item. It's good to have anti-SPAM features, but they shouldn't be forced onto providers and end-users must always have the ability to disable them.
