This paper addresses the current situation that our country is facing with "spam." It focuses on spam advocates, the opposition, and their points of view. Some groups examined are the marketers, Internet service providers, consumers, organizations, and free speech advocates. The paper is written with a tendency towards electing an opt-in procedure for future spam. There is great support with statistics and summaries of spam legislation. It contains extremely current information and data.

From the Paper:

"In this paper we are exploring the issue of spam and whether or not the US should adopt an "opt in" or "opt out" procedure. To do this we are looking at the major players involved in the spam problem that plagues the Internet today. These groups include marketers, Internet service providers (ISPs), consumers, corporations, and free speech advocates. We will also be taking into consideration examples from other countries, such as Korea and the UK, who have already adopted legislation on the issue. Thus far in the United States only "opt out" legislation has been considered. The "opt out" system establishes the right to oppose spam for those who do not wish to receive commercial non-solicited communications. The "opt in" scheme means that commercial non-solicited communications are only addressed to those who have given their previous and express consent for it. There are both positive and negative implications in both of these systems for each of the major players in the US. We will discuss these thoroughly and argue that "opt in" is the system that the United States should adopt."
