  • If CASL can apply to private messages on a social networking websites
  • How section 3.D. of the Industry Canada regulation raises some questions as to if there’s more leeway on social networking websites like LinkedIn to send commercial electronic messages (CEMs)
  • And if having a friend status on Facebook is enough to establish the personal relationship exception under CASL
  • What must accompany your CEMs
