The states law on spam is different then the federal governments. It could cost you around $1,000 per email spam and up to $1,000,000 per email if it is for a campaign. This all applies to the state you are in and whatever states you send deceptive advertising. Listen to this radio to hear more.

The difference in state spam and federal law is important to know. If you don't you could be breaking state law without even knowing it. If you are campaigning and send over the states legal amount of emails it can count as spam. So for each day you send more then the amount you could get charged the states amount of money. So check out your states, and wherever you are sending the email's, law on spamming.
