Dish Network hit with $280 MEEELLION fine for relentless robocalling


I've had instead suggested that it's grossly inadequate.

Dish Network profits were $3,810 million just last year, according to the first google hit. So charging $280 million seems pretty mild.

I'd like to see companies that ignore the explicit wishes of privacy of the general public fined hard enough to be shuttered. And yes, that includes the obvious internet-based ones as well. (Hell, it includes the governments also, but that'd be more difficult to enforce.)
