    Nice to see this taking shape after so many years of pain. I have watched the whole Video but was sad to see nothing is discussed on spam text or spam calls legislations. There is no mention of care of duty should be lying with phone service providers to proactively stop this. Txt and calls may also relate to advertising to some extent. There may be other areas too aside from this not highlighted but at least the fradulent advertising is getting on the radar, which is good! Well done to Martin and his team!!
