156K spam text-sending firm to ICO: It wasn't us, Commissioner

Kenny Millar

£45K - just build the fine into the business plan. I'm pretty sure that's what they do anyway.

£45K is neither punitive nor will it discourage others from doing the same. The ICO needs to get real about the size of it's fines and should pursue criminal trials against the directors of the companies too.
