FCC: Phone carriers that profit from robocalls could have all calls 
blocked -
Safe harbor lets phone companies block all calls from “bad-actor” telecoms.

"Bad-actor" phone companies that profit from robocalls could be blocked 
by more legitimate carriers under rules approved unanimously yesterday 
by the Federal Communications Commission.

Under the change, the FCC said carriers can block calls "from bad-actor 
upstream voice service providers that pass illegal or unwanted calls 
along to other providers, when those upstream providers have been 
notified but fail to take action to stop these calls."
