What is the anti-spam law?

Anti-Spam Laws at Work to Protect You

The Congressional anti spam law, the CAN-SPAM Act, is working hard to protect you from unwanted mass e-mails. Since January 1, 2004, the anti-spam law has required a national "Do Not Spam" list that forces marketers to include an opt-out link in the e-mail so that you will not receive any further communication if you choose. It also makes illegal the sending of fraudulent e-mails and unmarked pornographic mail. Those caught breaking the rules can face stiff penalties. This law coupled with greater technology and anti-spam advancements from internet service providers is cleaning out inboxes and clearing the way for wanted mail only.
