In Spring, 2021 we decided that given the fast moving legislative and technical landscape, we would commission an updated US legal opinion on the Greylist process.

Our previous opinion was delivered by a specialist US attorney with ideal credentials to understand the way Greylist worked and its interface with Federal and key State legislation. We decided this time to go to a much larger firm and chose the much respected “business” law firm, BakerHostetler. BakerHostetler has the capability not only to interpret Federal legislation but a network of offices and personnel that position it to identify all the legislation at State level that could have a bearing on what Greylist does.

We are pleased to report that the opinion delivered on 23 July, 2021 gives the GreyList process a categorical “clean bill of health” at both Federal and State level. The opinion addresses multiple legislation and case law including the Computer Fraud and Abuse Act, Data Privacy legislation including the California Consumer Privacy Act, Can Spam and the Banking Secrecy Act.

We plan to have the opinion reviewed and updated every six months.
