CAN-SPAM Violation: TJ Web Productions Must Pay $465,000 Fine And Perform Additional Actions for 5 Years

Yesterday the U.S. FTC and Department of Justice jointly announced a $465,000 penalty against TJ Web Productions for violating the CAN-SPAM Act.

This is one of seven companies that were charged in July 2005 with violating CAN-SPAM by sending sexually explicit e-mail. Settlements with five of the operations have resulted in civil penalties totaling $1.624 million.
The FTC judgment contains the details.
In addition to the fine, for which the owners are personally responsible and could lose their property, or worse, if not paid, TJ Web Productions must submit several different types of documents over the next five years to the FTC to demonstrate their compliance and existence of appropriate procedures to support compliance.
Is your organization doing anything that could be in violation of the CAN-SPAM Act? Have you checked lately with your marketing areas to see what they are doing or are planning to ensure marketing initiatives are not in violation?
