Comments:No relaxation of any kind should be made in the "Do Not Call List" rules. If any changes are made, they should be to increase the restrictions on telemarketing, not to reduce them. For example, the "business relationship" loophole timeframe should be reduced to three months, or better yet dropped entirely. It should be unlawful for businesses to include exemption from the restrictions as a condition for entering contests or raffles or in "use means assent" (aka click-through or shrinkwrap) contracts or licenses.
