Governments launch anti-spam initiative

A joint anti-spam initiative – StopSpamAlliance.org – has been launched by governments and industry bodies.

The initiative has come out of the World Summit on the Information Society conference held last November.

At the conference, governments and other attendees were asked to deal effectively with the significant and growing problem posed by spam, and they were called upon to adopt a multi-pronged approach by gathering information and resources to help combat spam.

The StopSpamAlliance.org initiative is supported by the European Union's Contact Network of Spam Authorities, the International Telecommunication Union, the London Action Plan, and the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development, among others.

The StopSpamAlliance.org pages link to initiatives in the field of anti-spam legislation and enforcement activities, consumer and business education, best practices, and international cooperation.

The site also features international events on combating spam.
