Re-Imagining Linux Platforms to Meet the Needs of Cloud Service Providers
According to the Associated Press, the House passed a bill to impose new limits on sending offers on the Internet.
The Associated Press reports the House passed a bill Saturday that would impose the first-ever federal protection against unwanted commercial e-mails.
The measure would outlaw certain techniques used by many of the Internet's most prolific spammers and, in some circumstances, include penalties of up to five years in prison.
But, if adopted, the bill would supplant tougher anti-spam laws already passed in some states.
