$16M fax voilation lawsuit resolvedby the FCC

Hot on the heels of an update to anti-fax spam rules, it was announced that the FCC has resolved a $16 million (and potentially as large as $48 million) lawsuit against a small Minnesota publishing company (Mariposa Publishing) as well as several other companies.

The lawsuit originated from a complaint in regards to fax advertising, which the FCC found that the rule on unsolicited faxes “caused confusion and misplaced confidence” about the language that should be included when sending a fax advertisement when permission had already been granted.
