Appeals Court Upholds Constitutionality of National Do Not Call Registry

Statement of FTC Chairman Timothy J. Muris

For Release

The Tenth Circuit’s ruling represents a major victory for American consumers. In upholding the constitutionality of the National Do Not Call Registry, the court has made it clear that the FTC and FCC can and will continue to protect consumers’ privacy at home.

As we saw in last week’s Harris Interactive ® survey, the National Do Not Call Registry is enormously popular among consumers who have signed up by the millions. And, the program is successfully working to limit unwanted telemarketing calls. We are pleased that this popular program, like America’s dinner hour, will not be interrupted.
