April 16, 2007 --> Do Not Call Registry

noticed that The Chronicle has written an article about the egregious telemarketers. Good article, Ryan. Leads me to think again about the National Do Not Call Registry and the enforcement levels associated with it.

As my regular visitors know, I have been pushing a petition to get Congress to facilitate a private right of action on violations of the Do Not Call Registry. I recently got into a discussion with people on an email distribution list who have a decidedly different focus than I do (they make little distinction between telemarketers who comply with the law and the egregious violators - one of them actually said that they wanted to destroy the industry). I have been discussing with folks the possibility of reducing the current $11,000 fine for violations of the Do Not Call Registry to $500 and making it available to the general populace as an easy claim to make in Small Claims Court - creating low-hanging fruit wherein folks could go after the folks who call, despite your being on the Do Not Call Registry. What are your thoughts? Please contact me here.
