What we really need is a law that says sending unsolicited advertisements,
offers, and so on via e-mail is illegal. I think some (all?) states
have something like this for faxes. The law should make it clear that
permission must be specifically given, so that the addition of a line
such as "by visiting our Web site you automatically give you consent to
receive soliciations by e-mail" does not constitute acceptance. A law
won't stop all this junk, but it should help significantly.
