MAAWG Canadian Anti-spam Legislation (CASL) Training Videos (June 2011)

The new Canadian Anti-spam Legislation (CASL) will significantly influence both email sent within Canada and messages sent to Canadian recipients from other countries. Outlining how this legislation will likely be implemented, M3AAWG hosted a three-hour training course presented by Industry Canada Policy Advisor André Leduc and Shaun Brown, Counsel at the Canadian law firm nNovation LLP, during the training day at our June 2011 general meeting in San Francisco. Neil Schwartzman, M3AAWG public policy vice chair and executive director of CAUCE, moderated the CASL session.

We are pleased to share this course with the industry and have edited it into four convenient segments ranging from 9 to 37 minutes each.  A separate video of the interactive Q&A dialogue with participants at the live session is also available as a fifth segment.  Due to confidentiality issues, the Q&A segment is only accessible to MAAWG members and requires a member login to view.
