FCC to Fine Chinese Jammer Retailer $34.9M for Online U.S. Sales
http://gpsworld.com/fcc-to-fine-chin...ine-u-s-sales/


The Federal Communications Commission plans to issue the largest fine
in its history against C.T.S. Technology Co., Limited, a Chinese
electronics manufacturer and online retailer, for allegedly marketing
285 models of signal jamming devices to U.S. consumers for more than
two years.

The FCC applied the maximum fine allowed to each jammer model
allegedly marketed by C.T.S., resulting in a planned fine of
$34,912,500.

“All companies, whether domestic or foreign, are banned from
marketing illegal jammers in the U.S.,” said Travis LeBlanc, Acting
Chief of the Enforcement Bureau. “Signal jammers present a direct
danger to public safety, potentially blocking the communications of
first responders. Operating a jammer is also illegal, and consumers
who do so face significant civil and criminal penalties.”

Good. But they should really find the retailers in the US and hit them too.

I bet the vast majority of sales are online direct to consumer.

But only if they could find the seller's site via search; another
opportunity to bash Google?

If they are hosted by an American site, then he is the retailer even if
the product is drop shipped.
