FTC to report on CAN-SPAM

The FTC is set release a report, entitled Effectiveness and Enforcement of the CAN-SPAM Act, which addresses the the effectiveness of the 2 year old CAN-SPAM Act. Officials from state and federal enforcement agencies, as well as the Canadian Competition Bureau, will also announce criminal law enforcement initiatives targeting illegal spam operations.

CAN-SPAM, which stands for Controlling the Assault of Non-Solicited Pornography and Marketing, is better known as a tool that has made it easier to send unsolicited mail because it took precedent over sometimes conflicting, but usually more consumer oriented, state legislation.
