LawMeme points to GigaLaw’s growing collection of over 30 articles on the legal aspects of the CAN-SPAM Act.
The GigaLaw collection is very useful for those of us conscientiously trying to follow the law for e-mailings that no one could reasonably believe were spam and wondering why our inboxes are filling with spam that does not comply with the law every day.
For further evidence of the sorry results from “well-intentioned” technology laws, take a look at Declan McCullagh’s FBI plans spammer smackdown, which notes that there have been zero criminal prosecutions under CAN-SPAM. I’m also concerned that FBI resources that could be devoted to homeland security are seemingly being directed at spammers. Spam is a nuisance, but do we have the right priorities here?
