Fax spam is now illegal in NZ

Post by digidog » Thu Oct 20, 2011 11:32 pm

As of yesterday, fax spam has finally been made illegal in NZ. It took a while but it's finally happened.
The schedule of the Unsolicited Electronic Messages Act 2007 has been amended to remove ‘facsimiles’ from the
list of exempt electronic messages. This means that an individual or company may no longer send a commercial
fax, with a New Zealand link, to a recipient that has not consented to receiving the message.
