Proposed Law: canceling a service, ending the spam

Doesn't it get annoying when you cancel a service, such as a phone plan with a cellphone company, only to stay on their lists and continue to get those annoying calls offering you great new deals to switch your service back to them all the time?

MK Uri Maklev (UTJ) has proposed a law that should put an end to all that. Maklev has proposed that canceling a service should also automatically be considered as an instruction to cancel any agreement for receiving any advertising and solicitation.

Maklev says that when someone wants to stop a service he also wants to stop the advertising to him. Taking out a service with a company is not a lifetime relationship meant to last forever. When you cancel the service you are also canceling all agreements that were made between yourself and the company.

Meaning, any continued unsolicited attempts to sell you would be prohibited under the spam laws.

  1. I am getting repeated spam robocalls to renew a warranty. They don't say what appliance it's for so it's probably not from anyone I've ever had a business relationship for. They also don't say who they are, provide a number to call (caller-id is blocked although yesterday one showed up as 015 01, I have no idea what that means, they used Internet Zahav VoIP?), or stop calling if I press the menu option to not be called again.
