Senate Goes After Spam



A bipartisan bill introduced in the Senate last week would make it easier for people to have their E-mail addresses removed from mass spam lists and for Internet service providers to take action against spammers. The Can-Spam bill, authored by Sen. Conrad Burns, R-Mont., and Sen. Ron Wyden, D-Ore., and supported by the likes of AOL, eBay, and Yahoo, would require mass E-mailers to have valid return E-mail addresses so recipients can ask to be removed from their lists. The bill would give the Federal Trade Commission powers to impose civil fines on anyone who didn't comply, and states could sue on behalf of consumers victimized by violators.
