Is this new law going to be effective, especially as it only applies to UK? Well, I'm all geared up to make a citizen's arrest on nearly 100 culprits of spam I got today. But they're all in USA!

I thought the law in the USA was tighter than a law re spam, even with this new ligislation - - - who do we report these 'transgressors' to ?? (just looked that up !!)

The law on spam is a lot more lax in the USA they decided to adopt an opt out law instead of the opt in law like Europe, this is one case where the EU got it right.
