The FCC now wants the carriers to fight robocalls. An upcoming vote may try to stop by leveraging against the varriers of international calls. The carriers must now try to determine if their paying customers are using services to perform robocalls, and then cut them off, or risk being blocked by other carriers. This seems a bit crazy, as that means that carriers will now have to develop spying methods to determine who to enforce (at their own expense), and who to ignore. Perhaps it’ll work… or perhaps it’ll be ignored like every other anti-spam, anti-robocall, anti-whatever method already in place.

The proposal would penalize overseas phone providers unless they cooperate with spam-call limits.
