In the Netherlands, the Dutch telecommunications watchdog, in accordance with the nation's ban on spam, has issued its first fines to spammers
. The highest single fine issued by the telecommunications watchdog went to a repeat offender who had used spam to promote Hitler's book "Mein Kampf". That person was fined $61,000. In another case, a company called Yellow Monday Institute sent unwanted text messages under the name "Purple Friday" and charged $1.50 each to people who received them. They have been fined $27,000. Many other fines were also issued. Keep up the good work, that's what we say.
