Internetnz Welcomes Spam Legislation

17 May 2004

Internetnz Welcomes Spam Legislation - Discussion Document

InternetNZ is welcoming the release of the Government's discussion document on legislating against spam.

"Spam has no single solution or magic bullet, but legislation is an important component of the overall solution, and this discussion document is an important step forward for New Zealand" said InternetNZ Vice-President David Farrar.

"As part of the consultation on legislation, we have arranged with the Government for an industry workshop on Thursday 24 June in Wellington for interested members of the Internet, business, legal and educational communities. Our aim is to help make any legislation as effective and useful as possible."

The draft programme for the workshop, a registration form, and a link to the Government's discussion document are all on InternetNZ's website at www.internetnz.net.nz. InternetNZ also has an educational anti-spam site at www.stopspam.net.nz.
