In case you missed it, Matt from Yellow Pages – Do Not Distribute left a comment about Albany, New York’s decision to mandate opt-out and delivery standards for yellow pages companies in their community:
And in case you haven’t heard, last night in Albany, NY, in what is sure to set presidence for all of these other cities, the council passed into law a requirement that any Yellow Pages that are delivered must be placed within 10 feet of the door. All publishers must offer a way to opt out of the directory (either on the cover or in the table of contents), and any names added to an opt out list must stay on there for 5 years.
Let’s watch now and see how many other cities follow suit.
Good for Albany. It’s great to see legislatures implement reasonable measures that make life better for their constituents.
