Texas Wesleyan Law Review
This Comment will analyze the two bills, comparing the need for such legislation with the purpose and likely effect of the new Texas laws. This Comment will argue that anti-spyware and anti-phishing legislation is valuable and necessary. However, this Comment will show that the problems of spyware and phishing have an extraterritorial character that will make it difficult, if not impossible, for a state law to provide effective protection or deterrence. Furthermore, this Comment will critique the Texas Legislature's opting to exclude consumers from the class of persons who may seek a remedy.
