NZ investigating 8 companies in breach of spam laws

Companies marketing or promoting their services with email addresses purchased from database marketing companies risk breaking anti-spam law, the New Zealand Department of Internal Affairs warned recently. The Department is investigating eight companies that have used emails to market and promote their own goods with addresses purchased from the same company. The Unsolicited Electronic Messages Act (UEM) prohibits commercial spam — email, instant messaging, SMS and MMS (text and image-based mobile phone messaging).

Australian eServices Pty sells majority stake to Responsys

Whilst on my recent deliverability tour in Australia I was afforded the opportunity to spend some time with Simon O'Day the founder of Australia's largest ESP, the Eservices Group. Certainly a visionary amongst the mobile communications marketplace. I knew then a big buy-in was afoot and today the news went public. Responsys has bought into Eservices to the tune of 51%. A big congratulations to Simon and the best of luck for the future with the new business: EservicesResponsys.
