Court Upholds Constitutionality of National Do Not Call Registry
Statement of FTC Chairman Timothy
The Tenth Circuit’s ruling represents
a major victory for American consumers. In upholding the constitutionality
of the National Do Not Call Registry, the court has made it
clear that the FTC and FCC can and will continue to protect
consumers’ privacy at home.
As we saw in last week’s Harris
Interactive ® survey, the National Do Not
Call Registry is enormously popular among consumers who have
signed up by the millions. And, the program is successfully
working to limit unwanted telemarketing calls. We are pleased
that this popular program, like America’s dinner hour,
will not be interrupted.
