Good spam: bad spam

Thursday, 5 February 2004, 1:28 PM EST

The world+dog is ganging up against spam with the US and UK governments and the European Commission this week all urging multinational co-operation and action in the fight against spam. Prompting this flurry of press release activity was a workshop convened in Brussels by the OECD to discuss ways of halting the spam tsunami. Monika Ermert attended the workshop on behalf of The Register. Here is her report.

EC Commissioner Erkki Liikanen this week issued a call to action in the "battle against spam, which we must not lose". In his opening remarks at a two-day OECD conference on Spam in Brussels, Liikanen declared that spam is a global problem that "requires global action. If we want to combat spam effectively, efforts made in the European Union and other regions of the world must be echoed by similar efforts at the international level, not only by governments but also businesses and consumers".
