Canadian Task Force on Spam Presents Final Report

On May 17 the Canadian government’s Task Force on Spam presented its final report titled “Stopping Spam: Creating a Stronger, Safer Internet.”
Our own One Degree contributor Amanda Maltby is on that Task Force.
Some findings presented in the report (surprise, surprise):
* Spam is more than a nuisance. It is increasingly being used to carry viruses and worms, to commit fraud, to steal personal information, and to invade privacy. Not only do these activities drive up the costs for both consumers and businesses, but they also threaten the integrity of the Internet as a platform for communications and commerce.
* To effectively combat spam, government, industry, business and consumers must continue to work together, using a variety of instruments – from clear laws with strong penalties and vigorous enforcement, to sound business practices, consumer awareness, public education and international cooperation.
