Weak Spam Laws Plus No Enforcement Equals Waste Of Time

from the well-that's-useful dept

Over in the UK, where they passed their own weak anti-spam law last year (saying it was okay to spam businesses) it turns out things are worse than they seem – as the law is only window dressing for a year or more. The authorities charged with enforcing the law are saying they don’t have the necessary resources to actually enforce the law, and probably won’t get around to do anything until next year. So, spammers in the UK have just been given notice to… keep on spamming.
