Groups unite to fight bulk e-mail fee

The battle against spam has been fought by the Government, and by the private sector. Even though recent efforts have reduced spam in some respects, it still remains a large problem by cluttering up inboxes, and constantly using up bandwidth. New proposals by Yahoo and AOL could help fight this problem, however their solutions have been met with some controversy.
