THE NEW Zealand Government is lobbying for an international agreement to fight spam emails.

The Kiwis are currently drafting a law of their own, but communications minister David Cunliffe wants a Breton Woods on spam.

Cunliffe said that an international agreement would be far more effective. He said that once the Kiwis had got their laws passed, they would be chatting to other governments about the idea.

Mr Cunliffe has said that without specific anti-spam legislation, New Zealand ran the risk of being seen as a safe haven for spammers.

The Kiwi law willprohibit spam, enable legal action against Kiwi spammers and let New Zealand be involved in international regulatory arrangements to curb junk emails.
