The Federal Communications Commission (“FCC”) is empowered to issue rules and regulations implementing the Telephone Consumer Protection Act (“TCPA”).  Among other things, the TCPA allows individuals to file lawsuits and collect damages for receiving unsolicited telemarketing calls, faxes, pre-recorded calls or autodialed calls.  Courts have also interpreted the TCPA to cover SMS/Text Messaging.

The purpose of this Educational Advisory is to share our firm’s collective experience in the area of TCPA compliance to ensure our clients are aware of the laws & regulations governing their marketing efforts that may implicate the TCPA.
