On February 23, 2010, the Senate passed the "Truth in Caller ID Act of 2009" (S:30) by Unanimous Consent. The bill was then presented and passed by the House of Representatives, also by Unanimous Consent. On December 22, 2010, President Obama signed the bill, which is now law. Under the bill, which also targets VOIP services, it becomes illegal "to cause any caller identification service to knowingly transmit misleading or inaccurate caller identification information with the intent to defraud, cause harm, or wrongfully obtain anything of value...." The bill maintains an exemption for blocking one's own outgoing caller ID information, and law enforcement isn't affected.

Wonder how they will enforce this. Any ideas?
