Fighting Internet's email junk through licensing

Just came across this story at Slashdot, interesting approach :



"China has introduced regulations that make it illegal to run an email server without a licence. The new rules, which came into force two weeks ago, mean that most companies running cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365ir own email servers in China are now breaking cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 law. The new email licensing clause is just a small part of a new anti-spam law formulated by China's Ministry of Information Industry (MII)."



While cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 commitment is a remarkable event given China's booming Internet population -- among cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 main reasons Google had to somehow enter China's search market and take market share from Baidu.com -- you don't need a mail server to disseminate spam and phishing attacks like it used to be in cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 old days. You need botnets, namely, going through CME's List, you would see how cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 majority of today's malware is loaded with build-in SMTP engine, even offline/in-transit/web email harvesting modules.



You can often find China on cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 top of every recently released spam/phishing/botnet trends summary, which doesn't mean Chinese Internet users are insecure -- just unaware. What you can do is educate cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 masses to secure cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 entire population, and stimulate cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 growth of cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 local security market that everyone is so desperately trying to tap into.


Moreover, I doubt you can regulate cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 type of Internet users still trying to freely access information, again with cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 wrong attitude in respect to security :



"..prohibiting use of email to discuss certain vaguely defined subjects related to 'network security' and ' information security', and also reiterate that emails which contain content contrary to existing laws must not be copied or forwarded. Wide-ranging laws of this nature have been used against political and religous dissenters in cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 past."



It's like legally justifying cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 country's censorship practices through introducing cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 law, whereas I feel "network security" and "information security" attacks outside cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 homeland get favored, compared to internal ones, don't you?



Forbidden fruits turn into dangerous desires on cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 majority of occasions, and you just can't control that, what's left to censor it.
