When will the US get sane anti-spam laws.  No, I don't expect a answer.

That behaviour here is illegal.  Any Australian company / individual
that does this can be fined regardless of where the email is sent
from in the world or which third party they hire to do it.  If you
send to a Australian email address you can also be fined, provided
you know it is a Australian address, as you are implicitly doing
business in Australia.  Remember you are choosing to do business
with Australia when you send the email.
