Anti-spam bill returns to House

Remember the ECPA, the proposed Electronic Commerce and Protection Act? It died an untimely death after second reading in the Senate last December, when the government prorogued. Now it’s back, relatively unchanged, but with a gnarly new name: the Fighting Internet and Wireless Spam Act. It has been re-introduced to the House as Bill C-28, and, given the fact that all parties have already agreed to it, stands a pretty good chance of becoming law.

We’ll keep you posted.
