Quite similar to the Federal Telephone Consumer Protection Act (TCPA), Indiana now provides that consumers receiving unsolicited facsimile transmissions of commercial advertisements may file a complaint with the Indiana Attorney General for violations. Further, businesses sending permissible advertising facsimiles must include notices with identifying and opt-out information on the transmission. Notices must be on the first page, and the opt-out procedure must be cost-free. Permissible advertisements are those based on an existing business relationship, prior authorization, or facsimiles that do not relate to property, goods, or services. Possible remedies under the state and federal act may be $500 to $1,500 per unsolicited facsimile. Many other states also have similar laws, so businesses should make sure advertising facsimiles are only sent to authorized parties and include the required notices.
