Californians Can Fight Back Against Unsolicited Commercial Emails

Dreaded spam emails are saturating our inboxes. Unfortunately, there is not an easy way to stop or get rid of the flood of unsolicited commercial emails. Despite Bill Gates famously saying in 2004 that “two years from now, spam will be solved,” 16 years later technology has failed to stop the influx of unsolicited commercial emails.

Fortunately, California has created a way for consumers to fight back with its “Anti-Spam” law (California Business & Professions Code §§17529.2, et seq.). California has made it unlawful for any person or entity to send “unsolicited commercial e-mail” advertisements from California and/or to a California email address. It is similarly unlawful for any person or entity to collect email addresses posted on the internet for purposes of unsolicited commercial email advertisements.

If you are a recipient of an unsolicited commercial email in California, you are entitled to seek $1,000 for each unsolicited commercial email advertisement.
