CASL Spamaflop

Check out Terrence Corcoran’s opinion article on CASL in this morning’s Financial Post: Spamaflop! Why Ottawa’s spam ban law is absurd and should be overturned. Here are a few choice quotes:

“I could say that Canada’s new anti-spam law is both horrifying and stupid, but Mark Joseph Stern, writing in Slate Magazine, already said that the other day.  One could also call it absurd, interventionist, controlling, costly, offense and an all-too-typical Tory mega-solution to a mostly non-problem.”

“Another way of looking at the anti-spam law is to set it back half a century.  It’s a law that cannot distinguish between a thief breaking into your home and the Fuller Brush man and the Avon Lady knocking at your front door to sell you brushes and makeup. It’s a Monty Python-esque farce.”
