However, as the data shows, CAN-SPAM hasn't changed the United States' rank as the number one producer of spam e-mail. Despite a few high-profile arrests, CAN-SPAM is not getting the job done, much to the surprise of no one.
No kidding. This is what happens when Congress listens to businesses and lobbyists instead of people and people organizations.
The number one issue with the CAN-SPAM act is common in bad federal laws: it preempts stronger state laws which makes the federal law a maximum instead of providing a minimum bar of protection. Now that the act has been proven by time to be completely worthless, I wonder what congress will do.
Actually, no I don't, I think I know exactly what they'll do.
