This guy is amazing - he seems quite happy that he is breaking the law!
[Apparently plays badly in chrome or something - I'll try and clean up.]
Just to explain - the relevant law is The Privacy and Electronic Communications (EC Directive) Regulations 2003 (No. 2426) It makes marketing calls that start with a recorded message illegal without express prior permission. It makes marketing calls to TPS listed numbers illegal.
Link to this article please rather than direct to the MP3. Thanks.
Anyway, I cannot identify the guy and he would not give his name and it seems to be unlikely to me, as data controller, that I will ever find his name or personal details, and as such I do not consider this call recording to be personal information under the Data Protection Act in respect of the other party. I record my calls personally as I am entitled to do. It is my copyright and as is my right I give permission for people to copy this file, and laugh at this guy as much as you like - spread the word.
P.S. one exception to the above - any person acting or planning to act in any connection with any party wishing to pursue any sort of criminal or civil action against me is expressly prohibited from copying, downloading, storing, broadcasting, or any other action I can restrict, in relation to that audio file. Any such action is only agreed upon pre-payment of a £5000 licence fee per instance (which I may choose not to grant) and any breach of these terms is considered to be a loss of such licence fee by myself and so will be pursued through the courts or as a counter claim against any actions.
