ACMA Warns HR Software Provider Over Spamming

Few things gladden my heart more than a company that sends spam getting taken to task. Regulator ACMA today revealed that it had formally warned Melbourne company Astute People Solutions over an email marketing campaign promoting interview skills software.

Formal warning is the final stage before ACMA starts doling out fines (as it did to Virgin earlier this year. Sadly, the regulator doesn’t have that ability unless the spam originates from Australia and includes an Australian link, so we’re still going to need our existing spam filters and other spam management techniques.
