Canadian Anti-Spam Law, CASL


On July 1st, 2014, a new Canadian anti-spam law (CASL) will come into effect that prevents organizations from sending commercial electronic messages without the recipient’s consent. Our understanding is this just affects recipients in Canada. In order to comply with CASL, we must ensure that we have either express or implied consent in order to continue emailing Canadians on our mailing lists.

In order to determine the best way to proceed, we read the full text in detail and attended two public sessions with lawyers who helped interpret the law.

Beware of Bogus Domain Renewals

Below is an example of a very sketchy domain renewal email that we received today.  The domain was originally registered at Godaddy, however, this company spammed us with this questionable registration.

Although domain registrars are free to charge what they want for domain renewals, $75/year is very steep.  This is not to mention that this company looks very shady and is not a business that we’d trust with our domains.  I’m not suggesting that this solicitation is (or isn’t) illegal, rather it’s on the outside edge of ethical in our opinion.
