Many of you have probably already heard about this, but I wanted to post a thread just in case anyone missed it. Basically, as of July 1, 2014 you'll need to obtain a double opt-in if you plan to send messages to anyone in Canada.
This is because of a new law that is coming into effect which is intended to help fight spam. You can read more about the law here:
FAQs - Canada's Anti-Spam Legislation
The big question is how do you plan to respond to this?
Will you immediately swith over to double opt-in for all list building campaigns?
If you're a WSO seller, do you see this as the end of building single opt-in customer lists with each sale? (In other words will you ask your customers to double opt-in after they make a purchase?)
Do you think other countries will tend to follow suit in terms of legislation making single opt-in a thing of the past over time?
I'd love to have some of the email markeyers within our community have to say.
