Rosen Warns of Strict Anti-Spam Enforcement
PRIVACY LAW—CANADAJune 2, 2011
When Canada's anti-spam law comes into effect, Andrea Rosen of the Canadian Radio-television and Telecommunications Commission will be charged with enforcing it. Speaking at a conference on Wednesday, Rosen stressed that the she has "the tools to find the spammers wherever they're hiding and the power to shut down their operations," reports ITWorld. Under Bill C-28, consumers have to give consent to receive unsolicited e-mails, and businesses could see fines of up to $10 million for serious infractions, while fines for individuals could reach $1 million. According to the report, Rosen hopes the law will come into effect this fall.
