Most law students are too busy to deal with unsolicited commercial calls, offers and emails. Last week, the World Privacy Forum, a nonprofit, non-partisan research group focused on consumer education, published its "Top Ten Opt Outs" list. Here are the facts and simple instructions you need to go beyond the national do-not-call registry and take advantage of other opt-out mechanisms available to consumers. Among the most useful "top ten" are ways to avoid receiving pre-screened credit and insurance offers, stop unwanted commercial emails, and prevent the sharing of personal preference information by vendors and Internet sites. Check them out and share the list with some friends.
