The Chinese Spam Wars

If current trends continue, China will easily overtake the United States in the next few years as the spam (unsolicited commercial e-mail) capital of the world. This development could have serious consequences for Chinese businesses and consumers by inhibiting the continued growth of China's vibrant economy.

In short, the proliferation of spam is one of the greatest threats to the effectiveness and efficiency of legitimate electronic communications and e-commerce in China.

In general, spam includes both unsolicited commercial e-mail, or a message that has not been granted verifiable permission by the recipient, and unsolicited bulk e-mail, where a message is sent as part of a much larger collection of messages. A majority of spam is sent through hijacked personal computers - better known as zombie computers - that send bulk e-mail messages to users.
