Federal Spam Bill Moving Along
from the but-it's-opt-out dept
A federal anti-spam bill is likely to be voted on soon and could very well pass. Whether or not it does any good is another question. It’s an “opt-out” bill, which means that if you tell a spammer you don’t want to hear from them again, they aren’t allowed to send you any more spam. Of course, what good is that when you can’t actually contact a spammer – or if they’re always changing their contact info. A real spam bill that would make a difference would require a clear, confirmed “opt in” instead of the other way around.

Probably written by the spam industry
An opt-out law? Sounds like the legislation was written by the spammers. A real law was would require a deliberate opt-in in order to receive spam, of course then that would in effect kill the spam industry.
