Do Not Call List Ruled Illegal

from the so-much-for-that-plan... dept

Excited about the national "Do Not Call" list scheduled to take effect in one week? Don't get too excited. A federal judge in Oklahoma now says the list is illegal and FTC has no authority to create such a list. I'm sure the Direct Marketing Association, who brought the lawsuit, are going to rejoice by calling everyone to gloat (and try to sell you some stuff).

Thank you for reading this Techdirt post. With so many things competing for everyone’s attention these days, we really appreciate you giving us your time. We work hard every day to put quality content out there for our community.

Techdirt is one of the few remaining truly independent media outlets. We do not have a giant corporation behind us, and we rely heavily on our community to support us, in an age when advertisers are increasingly uninterested in sponsoring small, independent sites — especially a site like ours that is unwilling to pull punches in its reporting and analysis.

While other websites have resorted to paywalls, registration requirements, and increasingly annoying/intrusive advertising, we have always kept Techdirt open and available to anyone. But in order to continue doing so, we need your support. We offer a variety of ways for our readers to support us, from direct donations to special subscriptions and cool merchandise — and every little bit helps. Thank you.

–The Techdirt Team
