The first federal anti-spam law has been approved by the US Congress. The bill had already been approved by the House of Representatives and President Bush will apparently sign the bill into law by year's end. The bill, known as CAN-SPAM, can be viewed here.
CAN-SPAM isn't without its critics, though. Rather than imposing a ban on unsolicited bulk email, the bill simply requires that marketers include an opt-out link in each email. California currently has a much more aggressive law on the books that prohibits spammers from sending unsolicited commercial email in the first place.
Either way, there's little the CAN-SPAM or even California's stricter legislation can do against bulk email originating from overseas.
