Sending out just one e-mail can land your company in a lot of hot water. Fortunately, there are laws in place that clearly define permissible and impermissible marketing e-mails. There are lawyers who make a living solely by suing companies who send them “spam.” To see how true this is, we invite you to read a profile of a California attorney, Daniel Balsam from the Washington Times.
The Controlling the Assault of Non-Solicited Pornography And Marketing Act of 2003 (commonly known as the CAN-SPAM Act), which regulates what are commonly known as “Spam” e-mails, places burdens on those who want to advertise using e-mail.
The CAN-SPAM Act comes with possible criminal penalties and civil liabilities, so compliance is important.
Centre can help guide your company so that it complies with the CAN-SPAM Act or help defend lawsuits filed for supposed violations of the Act or similar state acts.
Have a spam issue? Please contact Eric S. Crusius, Esq. via e-mail at email@example.com or by phone at (703) 288-2800 should you have any questions.
