Bucs and the Junk Fax Protection Act of 2005

Recommended Posts

According to Peter Jamison of the Tampa Bay Times, the Buccaneers have been sued in federal court for violating the statute prohibiting junk faxes.

Yes, there’s a Junk Fax Protection Act of 2005, which imposes a $500 fine for every fax that is sent to someone who didn’t want it.  The lawsuit, a class action with Cin-Q Automobiles of Gainesville as the named plaintiff, claims that 180,000 different people received junk faxes.  The fine, which can indeed be enforced by a private lawsuit, is $500 per violation.

Wtf were they faxing?

 

the article doesn't mention it specifically but it says it coincided with the 2009 decline in attendance at RJ stadium, so it's more than likely an actual advertisement to get people in the stands.

 

i wish we had more bucs fans here to smack talk to, this could get fun

A Gainesville business, exasperated by faxed ads for Buccaneers tickets several years ago, filed a lawsuit in U.S. District Court in Tampa earlier this week, alleging the football franchise violated a federal statute that outlaws "junk faxes."
