Monthly TCPA Digest – February 2019

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 the FCC’s adoption of a proposal to extend Truth in Caller ID rules to calls originating outside the United States and to expand the scope of covered communications services. We also cover the FCC’s first-ever report on illegal robocalls, the push for call authentication and call blocking technology, and FCC progress on multiple Petitions for Declaratory Ruling. In addition, we examine the renewed push in Congress to pass the Stopping Bad Robocalls Act and consider how the bill, if enacted, would impact TCPA-related litigation. See our final article for a recommendation for litigants.

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.
