AG’s Do Not Favor CAN SPAM Act

by Sabrina I. Pacifici on November 6, 2003 reports that the Internet Committee of the National Association of Attorneys General sent a letter to House leaders indicating their opposition to the CAN SPAM Act, under consideration by the House and already passed by the Senate. The reasons included “that the amended act has so many loopholes, exceptions and standards of proof that it won’t protect consumers,” and “that the law wouldn’t deter spammers, but merely foster more litigation.”

  • In related news, the Senate version of the bill includes a provision (Sec. 109) for a nationwide Do Not E-Mail Registry to be administered by the FTC, which is not in favor of such a list.
