New Federal Communications Commission TCPA rules will mean big changes for businesses, particularly comparison shopping websites, lead generators, and other companies that regularly contact consumers via phone or text message.  This episode repurposes a recent webinar.  After reviewing TCPA consent requirements for calls and texts and exceptions, we look at the impact of the U.S. Supreme Court’s 2021 Facebook decision on TCPA compliance.  We then look at post-Facebook TCPA litigation, post-Facebook state law litigation involving unwanted calls and texts, and recent state legislative developments.  We follow with a discussion of the FCC’s new TCPA rules addressing (1) how consumers may revoke consent to receive calls or texts and the obligations of callers and texters to honor revocation of consent requests, and (2) the application of TCPA consent requirements to lead generators.  We conclude with a discussion of compliance and litigation considerations arising from the new TCPA rules.

Alan Kaplinsky, Senior Counsel in Ballard Spahr’s Consumer Financial Services Group, moderates the discussion, joined by Michael Guerrero, Daniel McKenna, Jenny Perkins, and Joel Tasca, Partners in the Group.
