Canada's CASL

© MMXIV V.1.1.4
by Morley Evans

ON 1 JULY 2014, Canada's new anti-spam legislation comes into force. It will probably do nothing to stop spam but it will affect every Canadian and everyone who communicates with Canadians.

According to the law firm Miller Thompson: CASL regulates eMail, not spam (which involves sending millions of unsolicited eMail messages); CASL involves every single message — eMail, blogs, tweets, and newsletters; provides enforcement by 3 federal agencies; provides for private right of action; provides for fines 100 times greater than current privacy legislation; provides monetary penalties up to $10 million for corporations and $1 million for individuals.

After July 1st, 2014, nobody will be able to contact anybody before the sender has consent from the recipient to send a message or they will be at risk of prosecution or law suit. CASL adds injury to the nuisance of spam by creating a serious enemy for every Canadian using the communication tools available in the modern world.
