Canadian Anti-spam Law on the way

On May 7th, 2008 The Senate of Canada had the First reading of Bill S-235, to be known as the Anti-Spam Act. Once I have time to fully digest this I’ll post my thoughts on this, but to get you started the bill deals with four key items of note:

  • Form and content requirements for commercial electronic messages
  • prohibits address harvesting
  • dictionary attacks
  • and phishing.

Here is a link to the bill (PFD) that you can ready yourself. Please share your thoughts on this.
