Executive Summary

The Competitive Enterprise Institute has several concerns about the FTC’s proposal to create a Do Not Call registry. Part I outlines existing Do Not Call lists, and explores problems that might arise from yet another national list layered on top of the others. Part II describes telemarketing blocking services and devices provided by the private sector, and assesses the impact of an FTC-administered Do Not Call list on the market for these devices. Part III describes alternative actions for the FTC that would allay these concerns.
