The U.S. Federal Communications Commission has put in place tougher restrictions regarding prerecorded telemarketing calls, aka "robocalls." In a 3-0 vote, the commissioners agreed on four ways to limit the automated marketing calls, which often irritate users of residential and cellphone lines. The FCC ruled that telemarketers will have to receive written consent from a consumer prior to placing a robocall. The commission noted that some consumers may want to give consent to receive certain automated calls, such as ones regarding school closings or flight delays.

Both the FTC and FCC are hobbled creatures with no power to do anything. Just a lot of talk.

I'll believe this working when I stop getting many calls a day that they are suppose to stop. I was on the DNCL before it was official and to this day it has done nothing to stop calls.
