Cal Lawyers Ass’n Committees Come Out Against Email Law Changes (AB 2546)

The Intellectual Property Law Section and the Internet and Privacy Law Committee of the Business Law Section of the California Lawyers Association have issued a joint letter opposing AB 2546 amending California’s existing commercial email law.  The California Lawyers Association is a newly formed entity comprised of the various legal practice sections that formerly were part of the California Bar.

As an Executive Committee Member and Chair of the IP Section’s Technology, Internet & Privacy Interest Group, I am proud that the Section has taken this step.  If enacted, as indicated previously, it is my opinion that this bill will damage legitimate e-commerce operations and lead to layoffs and a loss of revenue to the state.

The full letter is below.
