Spam Law Failing

From Information Week:

Postini rolled out its January 2004 data on Wednesday, and said that new law or not, spam is still clogging in-boxes. In January, spam accounted for 79% of all the messages that Postini processed for its 2,000-plus business customers, a tiny fall-off from the 80% logged in December 2003.

"The CAN-SPAM Act appears to have had little immediate effect on the amount of unwanted E-mail," said Andrew Lochart, Postini's director of product marketing.

It seems pretty silly to me to think that a law can stop spam. But that's just me.
