Fed Do Not Call List Upheld
October 23, 2007The Federal Trade Commission today announced its decision to keep the five-year-old federal do-not-call registry intact. When the Registry was created, the FTC had originally adopted a five-year re-registration mechanism before essentially "starting over," requiring people who had been on the list (now 145 million numbers) to re-register to ensure that the list is up to date.
The decision was made today to retain the list as is.
According to the FTC, "The Registry has been implemented successfully for five years and has included a scrubbing program that has removed disconnected and reassigned numbers each month. Finally, “[T]he Registry has enjoyed unprecedented popularity and helped enhance the privacy of the American public in a tangible way.”
