Comments:AeA (American Electronics Association) submits these comments in response to the Federal Trade Commission’s (“the Commission”) request for comments regarding this proceeding. All AeA member companies utilize email to communicate with employees, business partners, customers, and prospective customers. Our members realize the importance of protecting American consumers from false and deceptive commercial email or “spam,” as it costs both consumers and businesses billions of dollars in lost productivity and unnecessary expenditures each year. Because of Congress’ efforts to control false and deceptive commercial emails, and the Commission’s task to further define the extent of those rules, we express support for the Commission’s approach in this NPRM and submit the following answers to the Commission’s questions.
