FCC Enhances Prohibitions Against Business Robocalls to Consumers

The FCC has furthered enhanced the 1991 TCPA rules.

The FCC has enhanced the strength of the 1991 TCPA by requiring a written opt-in from all businesses wanting to use telemarketing. The problem is that with VOIP, calls can be made from virtually anywhere in the world for almost no cost. While limitations can be made on domestic businesses, there is virtually nothing that can be done to prevent international VOIP telemarketing calls to our phones.

Not saying that this is a bad law in preventing unwanted robocalls to consumers, but there’s simply no way to stop the international VOIP companies that will be pummeling our landline and mobile phones.

There are no changes to the rules that permit non-profits and political candidates from making robocalls to USA consumers.  Don’t you love that the people who make the laws carved out themselves and the non-profits from the original robocalls legislation.

As they say in England:  “brilliant.”
