GREAT NEWS! Government of Canada suspends lawsuit provision in anti-spam legislation

By Artists in Canada June 21, 2017

Thank you for taking this Issue to the Government.

The Government of Canada is suspending the implementation of certain provisions in Canada’s anti-spam legislation (CASL) in response to broad-based concerns raised by businesses, charities and the not-for-profit sector.

The provisions, known as private right of action, would have allowed lawsuits to be filed against individuals and organizations for alleged violations of the legislation.

The provisions were scheduled to come into force on July 1, 2017, but have now been suspended.

 More Information 

------

AIC Article (from June 1)

Are you unknowingly a spammer?

You are trying to make a living as a Canadian artist in truly troubled times. New legislation will hinder you from initiating contact with potential art customers and those that could further your career.

The Canadian Anti Spam Legislation (CASL) was brought in through the Parliamentary back door and given Royal Accent in 2010 as bill c-27, then enacted in 2014 as (bill c-28), lumped together with other bits of legislation it was approved and passed. NOTE: Charitable Organizations, MP’s and MLA’s can still fundraise and solicit you, as they are exempt.

Comply by July 1, 2017 or possibly be fined

Serious fines for email spam violators (that could unknowingly be you) will be implemented starting JULY 1, 2017. Hungry lawyers have been queuing for 3 years waiting to prosecute and litigate individual and class action suits that could be in the thousands and even millions of dollars for large companies. Hard to believe these fines will be greater than settlements for some serious crimes.

The details can get complicated, but the jest of it is, your contacts need to OPT IN to receive your emails, NOT OPT OUT, like anywhere else in the world. You will not even legally be able to send a client an email to have them comply, they need to initiate the conversation. Bulk email violations could add up quickly.

So when does common sense prevail?

How much junk mail do you receive through Canada Post? You can’t request not to receive certain types of mail; Canada Post won’t let you do that, so all you do is throw it out. Legislation doesn’t cover the phone spam we all receive for any number of holiday offers or the out of country actual SPAM and SCAMS we receive daily in our in baskets. We just deal with it using common sense – DELETE or unsubscribe.

How to find new markets and grow your art business?

So how do you get in contact or stay visible with a potential new Art Customer, Curator or Art Gallery?

Let them contact to you through Artists In Canada.

Though Artists in Canada doesn’t agree with how CASL was implemented it is a starting point to limit some of the spam, though it won’t stop serious spammers. Ours is to comply as best we can and give Canadian artists a unique and economical advantage to building their following.

Here are links to more information on CASL.
