China signs up for antispam push

Country, long seen as a haven for spam servers, joins international effort to beat junk mail.

At a ceremony attended by British Ambassador Christopher Hum and U.S. Federal Trade Commissioner Jon Leibowitz, China announced on Monday that it will join international enforcement efforts against spam by adopting the London Action Plan on Spam Enforcement Collaboration, the DTI said.

China's original absence from the treaty was seen as an initial failing of the plan, which was drafted last year. China is second only to the United States as a source of spam, the DTI said, and the country has long been seen as a haven for spam servers.
