The CAN-SPAM act has long been overdue, but I am afraid that it may not have enough teeth in it as far as compliance or what to do for those American companies or individual who would utilize an overseas service to send spam to U.S. addresses...and there may be a problem with what I am about to suggest. I would like to see some sort of provision that would provide for financial penalities for any U.S. company or individual that would willfully engage a foreign ( not within U.S. ) internet or email provider strictly for the intent of sending unsolicited email to U.S. email recipients and in doing so, thereby trying to bypass the CAN-SPAM law. There would also be penalties to a U.S. Company or individual who would also start a foreign company to send unsolicited email strictly for the intent of sending unsolicited email to U.S. and for the intent of bypassing the CAN-SPAM law.
