About SpamLaws.com

SpamLaws.com is dedicated to providing accurate and up-to-date information on issues affecting Internet security. Our team of writers, programmers and designers are committed to ensuring our work is of the highest quality possible.

Professor Sorkin has written and lectured extensively about issues surrounding Internet policy, privacy and consumer protection. In 1997, he was invited by the Federal Trade Commission to participate in a workshop designed to address the increasingly troublesome problem of unsolicited email, or spam, and has since become an authority on the subject.
