    Default Canada Passes Law Making Auto-Install Software Illegal

    "We have been actively informing Canadian businesses about the new requirements for installing computer programs and our goal is to ensure they comply with these new rules. We continue to work to protect Canadian consumers from spam and online threats and want to remind Canadians of the importance of reporting spam to the Spam Reporting Centre."
    Manon Bombardier, Chief Compliance and Enforcement Officer, Canadian Radio-television and Telecommunications Commission

    Quick Facts

    • New requirements on installing computer programs came into force on January 15, 2015.
    • These new requirements are part of Canada's anti-spam legislation that came into force on July 1, 2014.
    • Canada's anti-spam legislation protects Canadians while ensuring that businesses can continue to compete in the global marketplace.
    • The CRTC in collaboration with Industry Canada provided information sessions across the country to help businesses understand and prepare for the new requirements.
    • The CRTC has the primary enforcement responsibility and is able to investigate, take action against and set administrative monetary penalties against those who are not in compliance.

    Actually I think its great how many times have you started to install a program, or any software, and with it comes other Sh!t you had no intention of installing

    it happens, and there is no way other then stopping the install or going back and deleting it when your done.

    I've noticed the "opt-out" choice is usually very small print and worded is such a way that "no" means"yes". I've been caught a couple of times. I can't help but wonder how long it will be before "work-arounds" show up and bypass the law. A good start, Canada.
