Canada’s Impending Anti-spam Law – A Global Opt-in Regime
Corporate Counsel has an interesting new post on Canada’s impending anti-spam law. It’s interesting because it’s an opt-in regime which requires proof of consent instead of the much-evaded and ignored US "opt-out" statute. The approach is reminiscent of ISO and SOX – have a process and do it right. According to the article, the penalties and class-action terms are potentially significant. Canada is no longer the sleepy neighbor.
