Upcoming FCC Ruling on TCPA

Posted In Government

My colleague, Matthew Rosenkoff, has penned a new piece entitled, Upcoming FCC Ruling – A Case of Clarity, Concern, or Both.  He writes:

Over the past few years, there has been an increasing amount of litigation involving the Telephone Consumer Protection Act (TCPA). A lot of those disputes have centered on issues plaguing the industry, such as whether certain software is an automatic telephone dialing system (ATDS), whether calls were made with express consent, and how a consumer can revoke consent. Case law has developed on both sides of these types of issues which has resulted in numerous petitions to the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) for clarification and a revised declaratory ruling. Many of those petitions have been pending for over a year and some even longer. During this time, many companies have been faced with mounting litigation costs in defending (and settling) TCPA cases because of the uncertainty on many of these issues.
