We are pleased to present the latest edition of our Monthly TCPA Digest, providing insights and news related to the Telephone Consumer Protection Act (TCPA).
In this issue, we look at FCC Public Notice and comment periods concerning several important provisions of the TCPA. The FCC is seeking comment on what constitutes an automatic telephone dialing system (“ATDS”) in response to the Ninth Circuit’s decision in Marks v. Crunch San Diego, LLC, which broadly defined an ATDS. The agency is also reviewing comments on provider-initiated call blocking technologies and requesting comments on whether the emergency purposes exemption to the TCPA’s prior consent requirement applies to motor vehicle recalls. In addition, we examine recent court decisions holding that under the TCPA, consumers cannot unilaterally revoke consent to be contacted by telephone after providing consent in a bilateral contract.
If you have suggestions for topics you’d like us to feature in this newsletter, or any questions about the content in this issue, please feel free to reach out to an attorney on Mintz’s TCPA and Consumer Calling Practice Team. You can click here to subscribe to the Monthly TCPA Digest.
