Nationwide Do Not Call List

Computerworld: FTC wants national 'do not call' list to stop telemarketers. Under the system, consumers could place their phone number in a national registry, making it illegal for telemarketers to call them.

The FTC is not going far enough with this process. The fine against Telemarketers who illegally call residents listed on the "Do not Call List" should be very very high...even to the point of bankrupting the Telemarketing organization at fault. In other words....Make an example of them. Show them that the law is the law and if you break it, you WILL PAY. (there is not enough of that these days.) Furthermore, a sizable percentage (or all) of the fine should be payable directly to the Resident or Residents whose privacy was violated, with no restrictions on the number of agencies that the Resident(s) can file suit against. Lets bankrupt this corrupt system, and put the power of our Freedom back into the hands of the consumer. Finally, an addition to this law should be that NO organization may have selling rights to a persons name or namesake. I.E no company can have my name on a list that they sell and make a profit from without MY express consent and DUE compensation.

We have a new baby in the house and the telemarketers phone calls are constantly waking him. Additonally, our family time, as we call our super/dinner time, is constantly being interrupted. If I want someone to call me I will provide them with my name and phone number. If I do not specifically ask you to call me do not call! I consider this an invasion of my privacy which I am entitled too especially in my own home! Stop calling!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

We get anywhere from 25-30 calls a day starting at 9am in the morning until 10pm at night. This is very annoying and disruptive. If I want to purchase/donate something I will do it myself.
