Nigeria considers outlawing spamming

Nigeria -- which has global notoriety as a base for criminals exploiting the reach of the Internet -- is considering making spamming a criminal offense that could land senders of unsolicited e-mails in jail for three years.

"Any person spamming electronic messages to recipients with whom he has no previous relationship commits an offense," said the text of the draft law presented to the legislature this week. - Nigeria considers outlawing spamming - Oct 14, 2005
