FCC releases proposed consumer privacy rules. (Headlines).

As the Federal Trade Commission (FTC) continues to review the comments the agency sought this year on a national Do Not Call list, the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) released a notice of proposed rulemaking regarding the Telephone Consumer Protection Act of 1991. The TCPA restricts unsolicited advertising via phone and fax. The FCC's stated aim in requesting comments is the need to better protect consumer privacy as technology evolves, while avoiding unnecessary burdens on the telemarketing industry.

The FCC is specifically seeking comment on how businesses, including associations, collect and publish member information in publications and whether or not this information available to members is considered an invitation for unsolicited faxes.
