USA: Spammer in den Haefen [Knast]

[prae/script: Wir ersuchen das p.t. Publikum höflich um Nachsicht, dass in den letzten Tagen un/fertige q/depeschen bzw. Doubletten abgeflogen sind. Es gab Koordinationsprobleme, die hoffentlich behoben sind.] Zum Thema: Ein Gesetzentwurf, martialisch in der Ansage, wie von Republikanern eingebrachte US-Gesetzentwürfe gerne sind.

Antispam sentiment on Capitol Hill is growing, with a new proposal in the House of Representatives promising to slap the worst bulk e-mailers with prison terms and millions of dollars in fines.

The bill, called the Reduction in Distribution of Spam Act, is sponsored by Rep. Richard Burr, R-N.C., and has the support of two powerful committee chairmen, making it the most likely measure to prevail in the House.

It enjoys the support of many technology industry groups, said a House aide involved in the drafting. A Burr representative said on Friday that "we're still kind of putting together the final touches on the coalition."

This proposal comes as Washington is focusing more intently on spam than ever before. Bills have been introduced in every congressional session for the last five years. The Federal Trade Commission earlier this month held a three-day workshop on spam, and this week the Senate Commerce committee convened a hearing on the topic.
