Fax case could be headed to the supreme court

A small publisher could receive a fine of up to $48 million for sending faxes to a client who agreed to receive them.

As their faxes did not have an “opt-out” option on them, the FCC has ruled that the fine is in place – even though the client had elected to receive the communication.

The publisher is currently fighting the fine, and the case could end up in the supreme court.
