Working Group on Spam and Unsolicited Electronic Marketing

Elizabeth Bowles, chair of the Working Group on Spam and Unsolicited Electronic Marketing, leading the morning meeting of the WG on Friday morning. Posted by Hello

The group briefly discussed the coming program for Saturday morning (8 AM!!) concerning technology controls. The bulk of the hour was spent discussing future projects -- an initial consensus was to develop materials concerning Spyware and Phishing for a future program. There is pending federal legislation concerning Spyware in both houses, Senate Bill 687 and House of Rep Bill Bill 29. The thought is that this legislation, and general interest on the topic, as well as a smattering of pre-existing law that might apply, so the WG believes there will be plenty of material to work with.
