Identifying additional “aggravated violations” could also include anything that installs a program or otherwise affects one's hard drive without one's permission. -- The CAN-SPAM act does not mention unsolicited pornographic emails that may not be selling anything, but whose subject lines and content are extremely offensive. There has to be a way to prevent these from coming into one's mailbox. Even if these emails are not opened, it is impossible to shield a child from their subject lines. -- Is a registry really necessary? People's email addresses change much more frequently than their phone numbers and updating the registry could be a nuisance. Why not just have the regulations in place that prevent unsolicited emails completely? -- The penalty for violating the rules must be substantial and applied swiftly. -- Could there be a way to forward violators' emails to a government site for prosecution?
