New laws will make spam worse

Well the new European anti-spam laws don’t seem to working too well:

“The European Privacy and Communications Directive came into effect on 11 December, but in the same month the UK became one of the worst offenders for sending unsolicited email, according to rankings compiled by anti-spam organisation Spamhaus. “

And the Can Spam Law in the USA has resulted in MORE spam!

“US email security company Postini saw the proportion of spam rise from 74 per cent in December to 84 per cent within the first couple of days of the new year.”

A triumph for the lawmakers clearly.
