Subject: [SpamCop-Digest]  Italy Goes Opt-in,
     Law States Senders of Unsolicited Bulk Email Now Face Jail

According to a recent posting on Spamhaus.org[1][2], spamming is now
a crime in Italy. According to the official release[3], "those who
send email advertisements without the consent of the address owners
will go to jail".

The rest of Europe will be implementing the same EU directive by 31
October of this year; Italy decided to implement it a little bit
early. Now, if only the rest of the world could follow suit.
