The FTC and Robo-Calls

Today's Wall Street Journal has a very interesting piece on the Federal Trade Commission's proposed regulations that would ban robo-calls to anyone without written consent.

The public has until Dec. 18 to submit comments on the FTC proposal -- adding to the 14,000-plus comments it already has received. Most are from individual consumers, asking for tougher regulations to strengthen the 130 million-member Do Not Call registry.

If you would like to comment on the proposed rule, you can do so here.

"You know what the fellow said: In Italy for 30 years under the Borgias they had warfare, terror, murder and bloodshed, but they also produced Michelangelo, Leonardo da Vinci and the Renaissance. In Switzerland they had brotherly love -- they had 500 years of democracy and peace, and what did that produce? The cuckoo clock." -- Orson Welles, The Third Man

"The graveyards are full of indespensable men" -- Charles de Gaulle

"Oh, so Mother Nature needs a favor? Well maybe she should have thought of that when she was besetting us with droughts and floods and poison monkeys. Nature started the fight for survival and now she wants to quit because she's losing. Well I say, hard cheese!" -- Montgomery Burns
