"Australian Teleservices Association executive director Michael Meredith warns a compulsory Australian do-not-call register would lead to job losses and a sharp drop in the telemarketing industry's revenue."
And also apparently:
"he said many people would join a local do-not-call register whether or not they were receiving such calls."
(see http://www.callcentres.net/CALLCENTRES/LIVE/me.get?site.sectionshow&CALL1066 for the poor telemarketers point of view)
Oh no. Boo hoo. Well, suck it down. It's in. First piece of sensible legislation in a long time.
