It provides an analysis of the meaning and interpretation of the new regulatory regime for unsolicited communications within the EU, and also addresses international aspects of the fight against spam, namely intra-European activities and supranational policies addressing the issue. It introduces some of the dilemmas of dealing with spam and the importance of effective enforcement mechanisms. The book aims to provide recommendations for further research as well as practical policy measures.
