Canada's Anti-Spam Legislation

Commentary by Stephen Downes

Canada's new anti-spam legislation comes into effect July 1 and if you're like me you've already been receiving messages from mailing list providers requesting that you provide "express written consent" to receive the email messages. You won't be getting one from me for this newsletter for several reasons: first, the newsletter is non-commercial, send, you expressed consent when you subscribed (nobody has ever been 'added' to the OLDaily mailing list; if you don't ask for it, you don't get it), and third, there is a ridiculously easy one-click unsubscribe at the bottom of every newsletter. But if you are involved in sending commercial emails in Canada or to Canadians, you may want to consult the provisions of our new law.
