Spam okay if not for profit


A select committee has recommended a major change to the Government's anti spam bill, suggesting anyone should be able to send unsolicited emails that are of an entirely non commercial nature and need not desist even if asked to do so by the recipient.

The original anti spam bill said that organisations that sent unsolicited emails to promote their aims or ideals such as school newsletters and messages from political lobbyists would fall foul of the spam bill. Spam okay if not for profit - New Zealand's source for technology news on Stuff.co.nz
