Resource update - Naming and shaming

UK premium telecom services regulator ICTSIS has published its quarterly update, which makes grim reading in light of the growing concerns over the new flavors of fraud and abuse which may be enabled in an IP world. The graphic on page 9 suggests we're looking at a near-300% YoY increase in consumer complaints in 2004, and ICTSIS highlights the growth in automated marketing voice spam. Page 12 contains an extensive list of fines and access bars imposed on a raft of unusually-named operators. (http://www.icstis.org.uk/icstis2002/pdf/icstis_quarterly_summer_2004.pdf)
