You spam, you pay

Kodak this week was charged by the FTC for sending unsolicited email to more than 2 million customers. Worst yet, the emails did not give recipients a means to remove themselves from the mailing list. Spam has become a huge problem these days and several companies including Microsoft are taking largely active roles in the fight against spam. The US is currently the largest spam-filth nation with China set to becoming the next biggest source of spam. Kodak ended up paying the FTC a fine of $26,331, which is miniscule compared to fines that other spam cartels have had to pay in the past. Kodak says that the incident took place more than a year ago and was caused by a technical malfunction in its computer systems. "This incident, which took place over a year and half ago, was a simple technical malfunction that caused the customary text to be removed from the e-mail," said Liz Scanlon, a representative for Kodak.
