Earlier today the Government introduced two important Bills – Bills C-28 and C-29.
Bill C-28, Fighting Internet and Wireless Spam Act, is the re-introduction of the Electronic Commerce Protection Act (ECPA). It is essentially the Bill as passed by the House of Commons just before the olympics with a few changes. Most of the changes are to harmonize the language to drafting conventions or to clarify the legislative intent.
The Bill is a major improvement over the initial version of the ECPA which was significantly improved during the Industry Committee review.
