   cause, directly or indirectly, any caller identification service to
   transmit or display misleading or inaccurate caller identification

   (b) Exemptions. Paragraph (a) of this section shall not apply to:

   (1) Lawfully authorized investigative, protective, or intelligence
   activity of a law enforcement agency of the United States, a State, or
   a political subdivision of a State, or of an intelligence agency of the
   United States; or

   (2) Activity engaged in pursuant to a court order that specifically
   authorizes the use of caller identification manipulation.

   (c) A person or entity that blocks or seeks to block a caller
   identification service from transmitting or displaying that person or
   entity's own caller identification information pursuant to § 64.1601(b)
   of this part shall not be liable for violating the prohibition in

   identification information under § 64.1601(e).
