Comments:I think this a step, no a leap - in the wrong direction. Just when we think good changes are happening in our Government, a proposal like this is made. It defeats the purpose of the Do-Not-Call Registry, and I believe it to be a feeble attempt at pleasing the Telemarketing companies. Allowing a loophole like this does not comfort me in any way, shape or form. Define "business relationship" - it is too broad of a statement. Just because I use a product or service once or even on a regular basis for that matter does not qualify me - or anyone else to be bothered with Telemarketing calls, recorded or not. The point is the Do-Not-Call registry does not violate any laws, and protects our rights, so why add in a provision just to aid Telemarketing companies? These past few years have been wonderful, no Telemarketing call since shortly after my name was put on the list. It should stay that way.
