I have not blogged about junk mail for a while, but it is still a huge problem.
I was rather disheartened when a judge decided that I had no loss from receiving junk mail and so could not make a claim under the The Privacy and Electronic Communications (EC Directive) Regulations 2003.
It was a real shame as it made the whole legislation somewhat moot. I really do feel we need a simple minimum loss that does not have to be proved, much like Late Payment of Commercial Debts (Interest) Act 1998 where £40 applies. This would make such cases work, as one would not have to prove an actual loss for the hassle of handling junk emails.
Anyway, time to try a new tack, inspired by a junk email today from a UK company :-
Yes, they really emailed: email@example.com
I don't think I have used that in any mailing lists or anything, I am at a loss as to how they found it, to be honest.
I have told them £50 in next 7 days or a county court claim.
