Re: Are you spamming people and don't even know it?
This is very important information Kate, thanks for taking the time to share it here.
I knew that the Can-Spam Act was serious and well-established (I've referenced it a few times when trying to get off of very persistent spam lists) but I didn't realize there were such hefty fines for breaking the spam laws. From the article you posted:
Since the Can-Spam Act of 2003, spam is a serious business. If you break the rules (yes, there are rules), you could be fined—up to a whopping $16,000 per infraction.
And I think one of the most important distinctions the author makes is that "Business cards don’t equal subscribers" - just because you have someone's business card from a networking event does not mean you can add them to your mailing list. Although I know this happens all the time anyway....
