CAN-SPAM Act Compliance
On December 16, 2003, President Bush signed into law the Controlling the Assault of Non-Solicited Pornography and Marketing Act of 2003 (CAN-SPAM Act), which establishes a framework for reducing unsolicited email. The law prohibits predatory and abusive commercial email practices.
The CAN-SPAM Act was recently updated with some new regulations that went into effect on July 7, 2008 and authorizes an $11k penalty per violation for spamming each individual recipient..
Today, most spam is fraudulent or deceptive in nature. The growth in spam also imposes significant costs on Internet Service Providers (ISPs), businesses, and other organizations, since they can only handle a finite volume of email without making further investments in their infrastructure.
To comply with the Act's regulation, The Disseminator uses a real return address and include a valid physical address, provide a unsubscribe feature, and verifies addresses are valid.
