Comments:In summary, BSA respectfully requests that the FTC clarify that e-mail notices of copyright infringement or unauthorized use outside the scope or extent of a valid license do not constitute commercial e-mail and, therefore, do not fall within the scope of CAN-SPAM. Alternatively, we recommend that the FTC find that the transactional or relationship message exemption applies to copyright infringement notices, thereby providing relief from several compliance requirements such as the inclusion of an opt-out mechanism in the body of an e-mail message. Please refer to the attached document for BSA's full comments.
