DirecTV Fined for Violating Do-Not-Call Regulations

Yup, more fines for DirecTV. This time they're being slapped for violating FTC regulations regarding the national "do not call" list. That will cost them $5.34 million. If the settlement is approved, it would be the largest civil penalty in a consumer protection case.

The FTC has stated that beginning in November 2003, it has received "thousands" of complaints that DirecTV had been disregarding the "do not call" list. There are over 110 million numbers registered on the list.
