CORRECTION: As originally published on Feb. 7, this Associated Press story erroneously described a list published by the Federal Communications Commission aimed at stopping unwanted commercial e-mail and text messages sent to cell phones. It is a list of domain names to which telemarketers may not send e-mail without permission from cell phone subscribers, not listings of the Web sites that transmit unwanted data. A corrected version of the story follows.

The Federal Communications Commission on Monday published a list of domain names to which telemarketers may not send unwanted commercial e-mail and text messages.

Cell phone companies submitted the domain names to the FCC. The list, available on FCC's Web site,  is the result of anti-spam legislation that President Bush signed in 2003 to address the explosion of unwanted e-mail messages. Under the law, senders of unwanted e-mail could be fined up to $11,000 per violation.
