Unsolicited E-mail Crimes

Last year the Controlling the Assault of Non-Solicited Pornography and Marketing Act of 2003 law was passed.  This law, also known as the CAN-SPAM Act of 2003, takes direct aim at those that flood e-mail inboxes with unsolicited marketing messages, including the graphic portrayal of pornography.  It also makes it an offense to send un-requested sexually oriented material where the originator of the message cannot be traced, or the subject line is intentionally deceptive.

There are instances when the legality of an e-mail may not be readily apparent.  Pornography, for example, is legal in some venues.  It is not necessarily illegal in all circumstances when one person e-mails pornography to another.  The rules, regulations and laws that apply to both the sender and recipient, the computers both are using and the nature of the material itself must all be taken into account.

Threats and harassment are unpleasant experiences, but libel on the Internet can cause more damage than either.  In the next section, this burgeoning area of Internet law will be presented in greater detail.

Libel and Defamation on the Web

Defamation is defined as making a false statement about someone, which hurts or damages that person’s reputation.  When a false statement is made verbally, it is called slander.  If a false statement is made in writing, it is called libel.
