Glossary:CAN-SPAM Act of 2003

Federal anti-spam legislation passed in 2003 that requires the following in each email: a legitimate header, a valid “From” address, a straightforward “Subject” line, an unsubscribe/opt-out link and/or instructions and a physical address. It also requires that all unsubscribes are processed within ten days of receipt. The Act is enforced and the first spammer convicted was a wardriver from Marina Del Rey, California. In July 2007, he was sentenced to three years of probation, six months of home detention and issued a $10,000 fine.
