RE: surge in spam email (fwd)

An interesting idea, but I have recently seen an increase in companys that
are sending spam advertising websites/ip addresses of _other_ companies
without approval... this means that currently any filters like SpamCop will
chase up the owners of that IP space, and with any legalities in place, the
"long arm of the law" could fall on the wrong people...

With a proper set of laws on the books, law enforcement could simply
read the content of the spam to get a phone number, address or PO box,
and prosecute whoever owns it.  The fact that they abused a foreign
server in the process shouldn't change anything.
