In-Depth: Sponsoring Rep. Kathleen Rice (D-NY) introduced this
bill to ensure that the process for unsubscribing from emails isn’t
unnecessarily long or complicated:
“If you no
longer want to receive commercial emails from a certain company, you
shouldn’t have to check a bunch of different boxes and fill out a survey
telling the company why you’re unsubscribing. It should be as simple as
clicking unsubscribe, and clicking to confirm your email address.
That’s the process that this legislation would require for all
commercial emails. It’s fair to consumers, it’s a simple,
non-controversial solution to a problem that so many of us face on a
daily basis, and I’m going to work to get it passed.”
Of Note: According to research by DMR, on average an officer work will receive 121 emails per day, and 205 billion emails are sent daily throughout the world.
