Indiana Doubles Down on DNC
On January 31, 2011, the Indiana
House of Representatives passed H.R. 1273 - a bill that substantially
changes Indiana's Do Not Call law. The purpose of this bill is to expand
the reach of the Indiana DNC program to include wireless numbers
(standard and prepaid) and VOIP numbers, and to make it clear that the
DNC law applies to ANY transmission to a telephonic device, not just
To accomplish these changes, HR
1273 starts by amending Indiana's definition for a "consumer" in the DNC
law. Currently, a "consumer" is defined as a residential telephone
subscriber who is an actual or a prospective purchaser or charitable
donor. Under the proposed new law, a consumer is still a "residential
telephone subscriber" but the common understanding of that term (i.e.,
an owner of a landline at a residence) is substantially changed.
Specifically, the new language expands the coverage of the DNC law to
any consumer who, for the telephone service received, has a "place of
primary use" in Indiana, or is issued an Indiana telephone or
What's a "place of primary use"?
Glad you asked. This term is defined as the street address
representative of where the consumer's use of the telephone service
"primarily" occurs, which could be a residential street address, or a
VOIP user's registered location, or, in the case of mobile telco
services, the licensed service area of the home service provider. Bottom
line here? Indiana DNC rules now cover all wireless numbers (standard
and prepaid calling services) as well as VOIP numbers.
