Fax-Spamming Could Cost Bucs $270 Million

Fax-Spamming Could Cost Bucs $270 Million

In the age of digital communication, fax machines are archaic, outdated, and more than slightly annoying. It turns out it can be quite costly as well.

The Tampa Bay Bucs are currently being sued by a Gainesville business that was annoyed by faxed ads for ticket sales in 2009. They decided to take this annoyance to court and the potential fines faced by the NFL franchise could add up to $270 million given the volume of the faxes that went out.

Attorney Michael Addison is suing based on the Junk Fax Prevention Act of 2005. It is unclear whether the Bucs have ceased sending out faxes, but, after two straight seasons of finishing in 4th in the NFC South, they may be looking for more annoying ways to get Floridians to purchase tickets.
