SMS Spam to be targeted in Australia
Posted on 16-Jun-2003 09:15 | Tags Filed under: News



According to news.com.au Australian mobile phone companies which allow SMS spam messages to be sent across their networks face fines of up to $10 million under a new industry code.

The Australian Communications Authority registered the Short Message Service (SMS) Issues Industry Code today - almost three years after the introduction of intercarrier messaging saw carriers and other companies begin using promotion text messages.

The code requires carriers and service providers to only send bulk SMS messages to users who have "opted in", and to allow them to "opt out" of receiving the messages.
