California took the lead in Internet legislation on Thursday, when the state?s representatives approved tough measures to regulate unsolicited commercial email, or spam.
The new bill allows Internet service providers based in California to sue spammers, when the ISP?s infrastructure is used to deliver spam to its subscribers. If unsolicited bulk email violates an ISP?s stated policies, the provider can sue the sender and claim up to $50 damages per message.
The bill also makes it illegal to send email using a false domain name. This is a practice often used by spammers to conceil the true origin of messages, in order to foil an ISP?s attempt to filter out spam.
On Monday, California governor Pete Wilson signed the California Internet Tax Freedom Act, which forbids new Internet taxes for the next three years.
