Australian Anti-Spam Laws To Come Into Force In April

It emerged last week that Australia's new anti-spam legislation will come into force on April 11, 2004.

In a statement, Minister for Information Technology and Communications, Daryl Williams explained that the delay in implementation of the recently approved legislation is designed to give Australian businesses "time to adjust their practices where necessary".

Under the terms of the legislation, internet users will be required to "opt in" in order to receive commercial e-mails, with the existence of a prior business relationship taken as an opt-in unless otherwise stated.

Businesses caught breaking the anti-spam law following its introduction in April face fines of up to $1.1 million per day.
