dc.description.abstract Abstract: In July of 2004, Michigan and Utah enacted child protection registry laws that prohibit businesses from sending e-mail advertisements for certain types of goods and services to “contact points” (e.g. individual or school e-mail domains) listed on registries maintained by each state. The prohibited goods and services include alcohol, tobacco, pornography, and illegal drugs. This Article summarizes these statutes and provides guidance to businesses concerning statutory compliance. The Article also highlights certain concerns about the scope and ambiguities in the statutory language. Despite ongoing debate surrounding these statutes, companies that choose to market via the Internet must understand their statutory obligations. Other states may enact similar legislation. Organizations that sell, advertise, or handle promotions for products and services on a nationwide basis may face compliance issues in multiple jurisdictions. en_US
