I'm looking for advice on sending outside of the United States. We have a client that would like to reach an international audience, but I am not familiar with the regulation in different countries. With the legislation changes in Canada with CASL, as well as the recent ruling in the EU again retailer John Lewis, I am hesitant to recommend moving forward. Are there any other countries with similar regulations in place?

Any information from those with international sending experience, or that have good resources to share, would be greatly appreciated.
