In the first such case in this Scandinavian country, the Maritime and Commercial Court in Copenhagen fined Fonn Danmark $2,200 under the country's ban on unsolicited advertising e-mail and faxes.
Spammers beware of sending your garbage over here!
The consumer ombudsman stated:
"We would have like to see a bigger fine, but considering that we are talking about a very small company and the fact that it has only been found guilty of sending 156 advertisements, the fine isn't that bad,"
They're going after the little guys because they know they'll never get the real spammers...
But most spam email originates from the US, China, Taiwan, South Korea, Brazil and Argentina... I don't think EU powers reach that far.
That poor company probably sent emails to targeted, hand-picked prospects in the hope of gaining a little extra boost to sales.
God forbid anyone should want to make any money!
Thursday a Danish court fined a Danish company $2,200 for sending 156 unsolicited emails.
Hey, do you think your leaders would consider lending their superb talents and expertise to our leaders here in the U.S. so we could have similar laws?
Like, maybe a Lend-Lease Program for the new Millenium?
That would be a wonderful thing.
Personally I think it's a good move by the Danish ombudsman and Virginia could be heading the same way:
Virginia's new law makes spamming a felony punishable by one to five years in prison.
