Court upholds FTC on on "Do Not Call"

The Washington Post reports that the The Federal Trade Commission (FTC) can go forward with its national "do not call" registry while an appeals court considers whether the list violates telemarketers' free speech rights, the U.S. Court of Appeals said Wednesday.

The decision, following on the heals of Congress passing a law in 24 hours giving them the authority, and the FCC claiming that they also have jurisdiction to enforce the registry spells doom for telemarketers.

It's about time the government did something constructive!
