Unwanted Spam

This link, given by an earlier poster, now seems to be working as I
have used it to report an incident of unwanted spam email sent to me
recently and originating in the UK. As you probably know this type of
activity is illegal, and this organisation polices companies who break
the rules.

Just to be clear, these are the rules, quoted directly from this site;
From 11 December 2003, the Privacy and Electronic Communications (EC
Directive) Regulations 2003 became law and two new rules came into
force regarding email marketing.
1st Rule
? when they send marketing emails to you, the sender must not conceal
their identity; and
? they must give you a valid address for opt-out requests
This rule actually applies to all marketing messages sent by
electronic mail (see ?electronic mail? below), regardless of who the
recipient is.
2nd Rule
? Senders cannot send such messages unless they have your prior
consent to do so.
If you have been the victim of unwanted emails, from any UK source I
suggest you file a complaint.

Poor form to answer my own post, but a couple of further interesting links turned up while I was googling about this topic;

So, if anyone has really upset you with spam, and you want to hit them where it hurts (in the wallet) the prescedent has been set.

That's all very well, but there is no prescedent under Scots law (which is where the only court won case has been to date) Under Scot's law, each and every case is judged on it's own merits, so two near identical cases could quite easily have two totally different outcomes.

Not Scot, just Scot-ish.
