So what?? 'federal law' is *NOT* relevant to the original poster. He can ignore whatever it says, with absolute impunity.

Wrong again. The original poster is subject to *NO* such restrictions.
Not only 'not a lawyer', but not much of a geographer, either. :) the original poster lives in _Canada_. And the laws *there* about use of telephones/modems and sending faxes, are *very* different.
Those differences *are* what he was complaining about.
