We are pleased to present our latest Monthly TCPA Digest, providing insights and news related to the Telephone Consumer Protection Act (TCPA). In our Legislative Update, we cover a bill introduced in the Senate that would increase the fines for “spoofing,” the practice of masking caller ID information to trick call recipients into answering their phones.
In this month’s Regulatory Update, we report on requests from USTelecom and the American Bankers Association that the FCC correct an apparent error in its December 2020 Report and Order implementing Section 8 of the TRACED Act. The codified regulations in that report would require prior express written consent rather than merely prior express consent for informational prerecorded or artificial voice calls to a residential number — a requirement that appears to conflict with the FCC’s intent.
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.
