"The House has passed the "Truth in Caller ID Act of 2010" [download PDF here], which does exactly what its name would lead you to believe," writes Nate Anderson on Ars Technica.com.

"Under the bill, it becomes illegal "to cause any caller ID service to transmit misleading or inaccurate caller ID information, with the intent to defraud and deceive." The bill maintains an exemption for blocking one's own outgoing caller ID information, and law enforcement isn't affected," Anderson writes.
