Sending, bulk email was, for the most part, illegal until The CAN-SPAM Act of 2003, this was signed into law by President George W. Bush on December 16, 2003. The backronym CAN-SPAM derives from the bill’s full name, controlling the Assault of Non-Solicited Pornography And Marketing Act of 2003. The CAN-SPAM Act has been referred to as the “You Can Spam” Act because critics of the bill claim it fails to prohibit many types of email spam and preempts some state laws that would otherwise have provided victims with practical means of redress. In particular, it does not require e-mailers to get permission before they send marketing messages. It also prevents states from enacting stronger anti-spam protections and prohibits individuals who receive spam from suing spammers except under laws not specific to e-mail.
