FTC Spam Summit

There are few things more useless than a federal government meeting but that won’t stop the U.S. Federal Trade Commission (FTC) from having them.

In July, the FTC is hosting a 2-day anti-spam summit. If you’re interested in being a panelist, you can contact the FTC by clicking this link. Let the FTC know your expertise and provide complete contact information in your e-mail.

As a practical matter, there won’t be a dent in spam until e-mail becomes fee-based on a pay-per-message basis. Third World spammers will continue to thumb their nose at U.S. regulatory agencies unless there is a monetary cost associated with messages sent.
