Canada passes "draconian" anti-spam legislation

Apparently, Canada is has passed draconian anti-spam legislation, which a Toronto Sun editorial (David Canton) says could affect ordinary press releases and announcements. The link for the story is (website url) here

A site called Slaw has a detailed discussion of the legislation here.

The bill would seem to feed in to the debate on “opt-in” v. “opt-out” that we had in the U.S. around 2004.
Webroot sent out a tweet about this today.

They say, Blame Canada!
