Great news for those of us who do not enjoy calls from telemarkerters!
"The Federal Communications Commission has amended its rules to
require telemarketers to honor registrations with the National Do-Not-Call Registry indefinitely.
The previous rules provided that registrations would expire after five years."
If you change your number you will have to reenroll, but otherwise, it's one and done. Unfortunately, some other loopholes remain, for example the DNC Registry does not apply to solicitations by political groups and candidates (however did they miss that one?) or to certain charitable organizations.
