Later this week, a conference will begin at MIT to help in the technological war against spam. (Wired article) They will be discussing how both the law and technology can work together to stop the problem. This is a good thing, but I did have a quite scary thought when reading this article.
What happens when the spammers build their messages with some stupid “encoding” scheme, then sue the anti-spam software developers under the DMCA? ick. I hope they don’t read that.
