FCC Adopts Strong Anti-Robocall Rules
Jun 18, 2015, 1:31 PM by Eric M. Zeman
The FCC today adopted a set of rules proposed in May that make it harder for telemarketers and others to place unwanted calls or send unwanted messages to wireless phones. The new laws provide clarity for businesses and consumers on when robocalls and other phone-based outreach is permitted. The new rules let consumers revoke their consent to receive such calls/messages at any time; permit carriers to create do-not-disturb blocking services; ensure new owners of reassigned numbers don't receive calls/messages meant for the previous owner; define autodialers to prevent misuse of the laws; and allow very limited and specific exceptions for urgent circumstances, such as to prevent fraud. The FCC promised to enforce the rules strictly.
