Join the 216 of your fellow researchers who have already filed comments with the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) in response to last fall’s petition from the Insights Association and the American Association for Public Opinion Research (AAPOR), which would clarify the difference between marketing research and marketing in the Telephone Consumer Protection Act (TCPA), eliminate unnecessary lawsuits, and reduce the costs and increase the acceptance and use of marketing research.

Comments are due July 9, so get yours in now, before you leave for the Independence Day holiday! Follow these instructions on how to file and suggestions of what you might want to say.

Big thanks to all the Insights Association members who have already posted comments:
