It seems Australia has managed to reduce spam through fines upto $1,000,000 per day for violators.

This is a good stop, but why are governments not going after the companies that hire the spammers? They are much easier to catch and fine, and if they are afraid using spam, the spam houses will wither on the vine.

In other news... How much in bribes campaign contributions is Orrin Hatch taking? He wants makers of equiptment that could be used to copy music and movies to be sueable by recordings labels and movie studios if an individual uses their product to copy copyrighted material. So, if someone mis-uses a product, he want to be able to sue the maker of the product. At the same time, if someone misuses a gun he does not want the victims and the families to be able to sue the gun makers. So if some one misuses a product, he does not want the maker of the product sued. A case of Dr. Orrin and Mr. Hatch? I think it's rather fucked up that he is more concerned about studio losses than with human life.
