standards body to look at spam

The Internet Engineering Task Force (IETF) has announced the formation of a body, the Anti-Spam Research Group (ASRG), to study the problem of "unwanted email messages, loosely referred to as spam."

A technological solution, rather than a legal one, may be the best hope for limiting unwanted emails. Though, care needs to be taken to make sure that it's done right. It will be interesting to see what the Task Force's Research Group comes up with.
