Comments:Great! Now that I have enjoyed telemarketing free dinner hours for more than a year, that peace and serenity is being threatened. If I go onto a company's website, does that mean I have a "business relationship" with them? If I call for an insurance quote, am I then involved in a "business relationship" with that company? Baloney. Keep the law the way it is. It's obvious to me that the telemarketing lobby is a lot more influential than the voices of 64 million American citizens who do not want to hear any solicitation offers over their phones, pre-recorded or live! As far as provisions for recipients to stop these calls, I know firsthand how effective telling telemarketers to stop calling was before the Do Not Call program went into affect. I can't imagine any process for stopping these pre-recorded calls that will be effective. So count me as one person who is in favor of leaving things the way they are.
