Comments:I suggest no safe harbor. No calls for any sales purpose, no prerecorded messages, no numbers dialed at all without explicit written authorization to a particular company by the 'Do Not Call' listed client on a separate form. Otherwise there's really no point to naming it a 'Do Not Call' registry. Why not keep control of telemarketing in the customer's hands and not direct marketing associations'? Also, to anyone not already on the 'Do Not Call' registry, instructions for accessing and being listed on the registry should be included with every sales call, preferably at the beginning.
