Damn, but those calls were getting annoying!

Those annoying robocalls asking if you'd like to extend the factory warranty on your car may soon come to an end.

Last week, the Federal Trade Commission filed lawsuits against three companies--Voice Touch and Transcontinental Warranty, both of Florida, and Network Foundations, based in Illinois--alleging these companies violated the Do Not Call registry law by making more than 1 billion robocalls since 2007 to residences, businesses, and mobile phones.

Is it just me, or are the Americans way more effective at prosecuting this kind of crap? Our ineffective prosecuting of 'ishers wouldn't be related to our preoccupation with CanCon user fees now would it?
