Spam Laws is a noncommercial web site provided for educational and informational purposes (see About this site for more information).

Some spammers have begun citing to Spam Laws within unsolicited e-mail advertisements, apparently in an effort to show that their practices do not violate the law. While this site does not provide legal advice, spammers and other advertisers should note that many lawsuits involving spam have been brought based upon statutes and common law theories other than those mentioned on this web site, and spamming entails many risks other than violations of the statutes set forth here.

For the record, Spam Laws and its author, David E. Sorkin, neither engage in nor have any affiliation with persons or companies that engage in unsolicited e-mail advertising or other forms of spamming. However, our linking policy places no restrictions on those who may wish to cite or link to this site. In other words, just because a spam that you received included a link to this site, please don't assume that it came from here. You may be able to discover more reliable information about the source of the spam by examining the full e-mail headers or other indications of its origin.
