There is a weakness here though. The Korean government can only require it of emailings done from Korea. In the US, the bulk of the spam emails are coming from outside the US. So setting up such a system would not cover the largest amount of spam.
Now they need to do the same with telemarketing
Actually, a number of U.S. states are implementing "do not call" lists at the state level.
Instead of signing up for the Korean service, I'll wait for the Saudi version where spammers get stoned or dismembered... ;)
Nahh.....spammers would simply learn to type with their tongue.
(although, that ctl+alt+dlt thing might become a problem...)
In the US States don't regulate interstate commerce so any law is only binding to mail sent within the State. The federal government regulates interstate commerce.
With the bulk of the spam traffic coming from outside the State's jurisdiction, I can't see how these laws can be effective.
