Australia's anti-spam watchdog has lauded the effectiveness of the Spam Act 2003, but warned international efforts and moves to combat the "fusion of spam, fraud and cybercrime" must be stepped up.

The Australian Communications and Media Authority (ACMA) said that since the Act came into operation in April 2004, the proportion of global spam coming out of Australia had "fallen dramatically" and now sat at less than one percent.

The Act's effectiveness meant "there does not appear to be any need or justification for significantly amending the legislation, as the current legislative regime is adequate to control and reduce spam emanating from Australia".
