TCPA Webinar Jan 13 2016 from Brownstein Hyatt Farber Schreck on Vimeo.
No industry is safe from litigation pursuant to the Telephone Consumer Protection Act (TCPA).
The TCPA is spurring more class-action litigation than ever before. In the past few years, TCPA class actions have increased by over 400%. There were more than 2100 actions filed in 2014 alone, and the number of lawsuits filed this year is on pace to surpass 2014. This proliferation of lawsuits is being driven by widespread misunderstanding as to how telephone- and text- 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.

· TCPA background
