Spam Fines For Singapore
from the why-don't-they-just-cane-spammers dept
If you thought US laws to prevent spam were ineffective and misguided, this link should be amusing. Singapore is considering a 58 cent fine per spam email. No details on how that fine was reached or what the definition of spam will be, but if the Singaporean government can stop spam, no one will complain. However, spammers are a notoriously difficult lot to hunt down, and maybe especially so, if the threat of caning could be an option.
