Proposed Anti-Spam Legislation Model in Singapore - Are We Losing the War before Even Starting the Battle?
Unsolicited messages have grown into an intractable parasite on the underbelly of an otherwise effectual and vibrant electronic communications regime. There has been a sudden surge in the enactment of anti-spam laws globally within the last couple of years. On 25 May 2004, the Infocomm Development Authority of Singapore and the Attorney-General’s Chambers of Singapore jointly released a Consultation Paper on a Proposed Legislative Framework for the Control of E-mail Spam in Singapore. It is timely to consider the proposed anti-spam legislation model for Singapore in the light of such existing laws in other countries and their levels of effectiveness since their enactment in their respective jurisdictions. This article critically evaluates the suggested solutions contained in the Proposed Legislative Framework and makes some recommendations for changes to the model in order to render it a more powerful instrument to fight the problem.
