Industry Canada has now published its revised draft Electronic Commerce Protection Regulations. These regulations to Canada’s new anti-spam/anti-malware/spyware law (CASL) are open for comment for a period of 30 days from the date of their publication, January 5, 2013. The regulations are helpful and a major improvement over the last draft regulations. They address some key problems with CASL. However, they don’t address all of the problems and only partially address others.
I have written extensively about CASL’s shortcomings and the problems with the CRTC regulations and the previous Industry Canada regulations.
