California considers bill to quash spam

Published on .

California GOP Assemblyman Gary Miller submitted a bill that aims to protect consumers from unsolicited, commercial e-mail. Called the Internet Consumer Protection Act, the proposed law expands an existing law that bars junk faxes by adding a provision to restrict unsolicited commercial e-mail except when there is a pre-existing relationship between sender and recipient. The bill allows for non-commercial e-mail and solicited commercial e-mail. The Coalition Against Unsolicited Commercial E-mail (CAUCE) backs the Internet Consumer Protection Act.
