The “Colorado Junk Email Law” establishes certain restrictions on the transmission of unsolicited commercial electronic mail messages which promote the sale or lease of goods, services or property to Colorado residents. (6-2.5-101 through 105 C.R.S.)
The law creates a private right of action in small claims, county, or district court for persons receiving unsolicited commercial e-mails and for e-mail service providers whose network or facilities are used to send unsolicited e-mails.
E-mail service providers that adopt measures to prevent the transmission of unsolicited commercial electronic mail messages prohibited by the law shall be immune from civil liability for their actions. In addition, e-mail service providers are not liable for the mere transmission of bulk, unsolicited commercial electronic mail messages over the provider’s computer network.
See the “Junk E-Mail” topic in the Attorney General’s Conumser Resource Guide.

The federal “Controlling the Assault of Non-Solicited Pornography and Marketing Act” (“CAN-SPAM Act”) of 2003 is designed to deal with unsolicited or junk e-mail messages delivering either a commercial offer or pornographic images. CAN-SPAM Act prohibits transmission of any e-mail that contains false or misleading header (or “from” line) information and prohibits false or misleading “subject” line information. The Act also requires a functioning return e-mail address or similar mechanism for allowing the addressee to “opt out” of receiving any further messages from the sender. Senders must comply with any opt out requests within 10 business days. The Federal Trade Commission has primary authority to enforce CAN-SPAM Act, although state attorneys general and Internet Service providers also may enforce its provisions.
