Editor, CAN-SPAM act
President Bush signed US CAN-SPAM act, which is designed to reduce spam by making illegal common spammer practices such as falsified header information and sending email to addresses harvested from the web.
Some critics say that it legitimizes spam by allowing sending unsolicited commercial email as long as it has an opt-out mechanism, a functioning return e-mail address, a valid subject line indicating the e-mail is an advertisement and the legitimate physical address of the mailer.
