Coalition Against Unsolicited Commercial Email (CAUCE)

Citizens Against Unsolicited Commercial Email (Cauce)

CAUCE began as a discussion group called SPAM-LAW which was the outgrowth of another group called SPAM-L, the Spam Prevention and Discussion List. A number of people who participated in SPAM-L felt legislation was necessary to stop spam from choking the life out of the Internet. To keep the list topic focused, it was to create a separate list, the SPAM-LAW list, to discuss options on how to further legislation to prevent spam.

The core members of CAUCE constitute the members of the SPAM-LAW list, who drafted the amendment, beat bushes, roused rabble, coded software, and generally worked their butts off to make this initiative a reality.
