Danish Company Convicted in Spam Case

Share this content:
A Danish software company was convicted and fined yesterday for sending unsolicited commercial e-mail, or spam, according to wire reports.

Fonn Danmark was fined $2,200 by the Maritime and Commercial Court in Copenhagen under the country's ban on unsolicited advertising e-mail and faxes, which was enacted in July 2000, The Associated Press reported. This is the country's first such case.

Investigators said the company sent 156 advertising messages, according to the AP. Denmark's government-run Consumer Agency sued the company after it received 50 complaints, AP said.

"We would have liked to see a bigger fine, but considering that we are talking about a very small company and the fact that it has only been found guilty of sending 156 advertisements, the fine isn't that bad," Denmark's consumer ombudsman, Hagen Joergensen, told the AP.
