Do Not Call
opt-out system to avoid getting calls at home from telemarketers
hey, maybe I can stop paying for an unlisted number...
exemptions (which I don't necessarily agree with): non-profits, religions, political parties
This process was challenged in the courts by the Direct Marketing Association and the American Teleservices Association. Shame on you! I can't believe the Colorado District Court treated this as a First Amendment right for companies. The government wasn't saying they couldn't call anybody, it was letting people say they didn't want to receive the calls.
