Norway, other countries to put a stop to spam

A number of European countries are planning a new law that protects the recipient of so-called spam. It will become the spammer's responsibility to check if the person he or she intends to send the unsolicited e-mail to is on an official opt-out list or not. If the spammer fails to do this, and if he or she sends out the e-mail to someone who has asked not to receive any, the spammer risks legal action. The new law will come into effect on March 1st, in Norway, Denmark, Finland, Austria and Italy.
