EU anti-spam legislation up again this evening

Author: JT Smith

The Register: "Anti-spam legislation is about to go through another round of voting tonight in
Strasbourg as the Committee on Citizens' Freedoms and Rights, Justice and Home
Affairs tries to adopt a new report with amendments.

We don't want to get into the whole involved mess but basically what you need to
know is that the Telecoms Data Protection Directive (which includes the laws on
spam) is in the fifth stage (first reading) of seven before it becomes EU law."
