TCPA Actions: What You Must Know to Avoid Liability
No industry is safe from litigation pursuant to the Telephone Consumer Protection Act (TCPA). This includes the gaming and casino industries, where the use of telephone- and text-message marketing activities continues to grow and become an integrated part of the customer experience.
The TCPA is spurring more class-action litigation than ever before. In the past few years, TCPA class actions have increased by over 400%. This proliferation of lawsuits is being driven by widespread misunderstanding as to how telephone- and text-message marketing activities are regulated, as well as ever-changing technological advancements, and recent FCC rulings.
The TCPA is a strict liability statute that awards $500 per violation and $1,500 per willful violation, without cap. Recent settlements have been in the tens of millions of dollars.
Any company that engages with current or prospective customers over phone, fax or by text courts the possibility of incurring significant liability under the TCPA.
Please join Brownstein Hyatt Farber Schreck for a 30-minute webinar which will supply insight and practical advice upon the following topics:
- TCPA background
- Review of FCC guidance, including the Double Opt-In Requirement and recent orders on consent and its revocation
- Class action strategies
