More Anti-Spam Legislation

by Sabrina I. Pacifici on May 28, 2003

H.R. 2214: To prevent unsolicited commercial electronic mail. Sponsor: Rep. Richard Burr (R-NC), introduced 5/22/2003. This Act may be cited as the “Reduction in Distribution of Spam Act of 2003.”
Summary from Spam Laws: “The bill would require all commercial e-mail messages to be identified as such (but not with a standard label, except for unsolicited explicit messages), and to include the sender’s physical address and an opt-out mechanism. It would prohibit the use of false or misleading headers in commercial messages. State laws that prohibit unsolicited commercial e-mail, regulate opt-out procedures, or require subject-line labels would be pre-empted; laws that merely regulate falsification of message headers would remain in effect.”
