(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 paragraph (a) of this section.
