I'm sorry, but I find it simply impossible to believe that it will
become illegal to send an email to a customer under that law.

I suppose my email address in my customer's database will also be
"protected" by this legislation, therefore they can't email me
either.

And surely there's no reason email addresses should be any different
to phone numbers or postal addresses.

Hey presto... all of a sudden it's impossible to contact *anyone*
by *any* method.

I think you're missing something.
