Cameron Langford reports:

Mississippi cannot outlaw spoofing services that do not try to cause harm by misrepresenting a phone caller’s number to the recipient, the 5th Circuit ruled.

In 2010 Mississippi enacted the Caller ID Anti-Spoofing Act (ASA) which makes it illegal for a person to enter false information into a phone caller ID system with the intent to deceive, defraud or mislead the recipient. The law also makes it illegal to knowingly place a call after false info has been entered into the phone caller ID system with intent to deceive, defraud or mislead the recipient.
