UK Says No To Spam

By Chris on September 20, 2003

UK Bans Spam Messages — Effective December 11th, spammers could be fined £5,000 ($8,200) for spending spam messages but there are a few caveats to the new law.

“Under the new law, companies will have to get permission from an individual before they can send them an e-mail or text message.

But the regulations do not cover business e-mail addresses, despite some calls for a blanket ban on spam.”
