Over the past months, I have been writing, lecturing and advising on Canada's anti-spam legislation (CASL). In discussing the legislation, I have encountered many myths and misconceptions about CASL and its implications. This is not surprising. The legislation and accompanying regulations create a complex and often confusing regulatory regime that contains more questions than answers.
Canada Anti-Spam Legislation regulates many other IT related practices, including the installation of computer programs and the unauthorized electronic collection of personal information and email addresses.
