There are already laws which cover paper mail and telephone solicitation. The best resource for info on that appears to be http://www.junkbusters.com/ . And, to answer a question earlier in this thread: yes, there have been heavy fines levied against advertisers who do not follow those laws. Same with junk faxes. http://www.cauce.org/ and http://www.suespammers.org/ can tell you of the work being done on US legislation for spam. But, let's not open the debate on whether that's a good idea or not here again, okay? Or if you do, please read the bills in question first. -- J.D.
