Comments:Allowing any sort of loophole based on a "prior business relationship" like this is ripe for abuse by the telemarketing industry. Without a concrete definition of "prior business relationship," the recipient has no way of ENDING said relationship, leaving him/her open to continued harassment at the hands of telemarketers. The do not call list is just that, people who signed up for it DO NOT WANT CALLS of any sort. Stop pandering to the corporations and start protecting the people, that is what government is for.
