Opt-Out phone spam?

Here's a new one...
We got a call for my wife. It was an advertisement; the last day for her to sign up for a conference. She gets mail from them all the time, so it was a company/association I was at least familiar with. They were advertising that today was the "very last day to register for their conference and take advantage of the EARLY BIRD SPECIAL." I don't think my wife knew of this conference; certainly, if she did, she wasn't planning on attending. But, at the end of the message, the recorded caller said I could opt-out of future phone calls. WHAT?!?
When did this start?
