|Title:||Notice of Proposed Rulemaking, Request for Comment|
|CFR Citation:||16 CFR Part 310|
Comments:The people and congress have expressed their abhorence with telemarketers. The FTC, which has a tin ear on so many issues, should not have even put these rules out for public comment because their basic direction undermines the expressed will of the people and congress and eases the way for telemarketers to make contacts Any form of telemarketing should not be made more efficient and/or less expensive per call. That only encourages more of it. Also your summary is too complicated. One should not have to be a lawyer to understand it. Such terms as "abandonment" and "safe harbor". And I object to the idea that just because I have done business with a legal entity, it gives that legal entity any additional right to invade my privacy by contacting me for purposes of making additional sales. I know this is not the basis of the current rule making, but it is one of the flaws in the rules that permits telemarketing lobbyists to try and get Powell and his team to degrade the legal framework of the accomplishments of the citizens to stop telemarketers. Such as what we have going on here.
