This week (on Canada Day, July 1, 2014) Canada's new CASL (Canadian Anti-Spam Laws) went into effect. There will be a 3-year transition period, before full enforcement goes into effect, but the gist of the situation is that (according to everything I have read), Canadian citizens will be allowed to sue any emails sent from 'unopted' sources (i.e. sources to whom or from which they haven't given explicit permission to send email).

I was a bit excited to learn about the recent statements by a Harvard University Professor of Divinity that the famous fragment of papyrus which discusses Jesus Christ having had a wife is not a forgery.
