FEDERAL COURT RULES AGAINST FTC'S DO-NOT-CALL LIST
Direct Marketing Assocation Hails Ruling, Starts Calling Millions of People Immediately
New York, NY /DenounceNewswire/ -- 24 September 2003 -- The Federal Trade Commission (FTC) overstepped their bounds, a federal court ruled today, in establishing a national do-not-call registry. The court ordered that the registry immediately be stopped.
In a surprise move, the court also ordered that the millions of names, addresses, and telephone numbers (many of which are unlisted) contained in the registry be turned over to the Direct Marketing Association (DMA), and that the DMA and its member telemarketing firms are free to use the information and call people starting today.
"This is an outrage!" said 300 million Americans, when asked for an opinion on the court ruling.
Stocks in publicly-traded telemarking firms soared today, the moment the ruling was announced.
