Most modern businesses have experienced the tremendous frustrations caused by spam messages. Unsolicited emails clog inboxes, crash servers, and cost companies billions. In 2003, Congress enacted the CAN Spam Act (the “Act”) with the goal of drastically reducing or eliminating spam. However, the Act has been heavily criticized, and many believe it does little to eliminate the problem. Experts argue that the Act serves as a “how to legally spam” guide for e-marketers, rather than a serious legal deterrent. Others insist that spam has actually increased since the Act’s passage.
