This has to be about rights because the only way for the Internet to
work is to understand that there are owners of machines, networks and
domains. Without signed contracts, those who are not owners have
no rights to tell these owners how to run their systems.
Sorry, guys, but that's incorrect. You're putting the discussion on a
wrong assumption. There are several countries were the sender has or
can have rights by law or constitution. The sender's rights are not
constituted by contracts only. E.g. in several countries suppressing
e-mail can be considered as a crime under certain
circumstances. E.g. in Germany illegal suppression of e-mail can be
sentenced with up to five years of prision.
There are also some special rules in business-to-business
