[VoiceOps] Truth in CallerID act of 2010

There is an "intent to deceive" clause that still bothers me.  In most 
cases it probably doesn't apply, but "deceive" can be interpreted pretty 
loosely.  An example, although not an important one, would be a prank 
call on a buddy.  No fraud, no harm, but with intent to deceive.  I 
don't know how else this could end up being applied, but I always 
consider the unintended consequences of new laws.

Is it my intent to deceive when I call a customer from my cell phone 
through my Asterisk server so it shows the office caller ID?  I simply 
don't want them calling my cell, but it could be said I'm trying to 
deceive them into thinking I'm in the office.  Possibly a stretch, yet 
it's a nagging little thing, because so many laws have been poorly 
applied in the past.
