UK Politicians No Longer Blaming US Politicians For Spam

from the schooled dept

The UK politicians who made a special trip over to the US to try to educate our politicians on why they need to enact identical spam laws as found in the UK have started to backtrack. They say they discovered that folks in the US understand the spam problem and identical laws aren’t needed. Instead, they’re looking forward to a better plan for “working together” on the spam problem. Sounds like the US folks told the UK politicians to shut up and go away, and this is their way of saving face. So far, it appears that anti-spam laws being passed on both sides of the Atlantic have some pretty serious problems – so we’ll see if either set of laws, combined with a closer working relationship actually do anything to solve the problem, or just make the problem worse.
