News on the Texas Spam Law

Link: Legislation signals round one in the battle of spam. (News 8 Austin)

In the linked story, I talked to News 8 Austin about the impending Texas spam law. Regular readers of this blog (Hi mom! Hi sis!) may be bemused to see me playing the role of supporter. I've been quite clear about my displeasure with this law. They, however, already had somebody for the opponent, and, by the calculus of TV journalism, the opening they had to fill was for somebody in favor.

I'm glad I was able to make the point that this law does not prohibit spam, but actually legalizes it. That's some consolation. That, and the fact they spelled my name correctly.
