"Safeguards should be provided for subscribers against intrusion of their privacy by unsolicited communications for direct marketing purposes in particular by means of automated calling machine, telefaxes and email, including SMS messages. These forms of unsolicited commercial communications may on the one hand be relatively cheap and easy to send and on the other may impose a burden and/or cost on the recipient. Moreover, in some cases their volume may also cause difficulties for electronic communications networks and terminal equipment. For such forms of unsolicited communications for direct marketing, it is justified to require that prior explicit consent of the recipients is obtained before such communications are addressed to them."

Google seems to have had a happy brainstorm recently . . at the beginning of the year it showed just under 1000 hits which appear to relate to the case .. now it's showing over 17,000! See here for the latest.

Please note

This site is about the recently settled Claim in the English County Court between Nigel Roberts and an English email and fax marketing company Media Logistics (UK) Limited with offices in Falkirk, Scotland. It should be noted that that Media Logistics GmbH (a German design company of note) appears to have nothing to do with the UK company. (They are at an address in the .COM domain,whereas the Scottish email marketing company's website address ends in '.NET').
