The Senate Commerce Committee has passed a “tough” anti-spam bill, reports MSNBC. But this Cox-Wyden-Burns measure would only require accurate headers and opt-in — nearly all spam messages already say you “asked” to be on their list — but would also preempt all state remedies against spammers. Meaning there’s no way to go after these folks. It’s a little bit of nothing on spam and a lot of political spin. But that’s Washington.
