Reminder: TCPA Webinar: Today, 12 – 1 p.m. (EST) — Sign Up Now

TCPA Webinar_-_Banner_-_Feb2015Just a reminder that there’s still time to register for today’s webinar, “Telephone Consumer Protection Act Update: The Year in Review and Trends for 2015.”

As many of you are likely aware, the TCPA restricts telephone solicitations (i.e., telemarketing) and the use of automated telephone dialing system (ATDS), artificial or prerecorded voice messages, SMS text messages and fax machines. Violations of the TCPA can cost companies millions of dollars. Hundreds of class action lawsuits have been brought. Settlements across a variety of industries have caused companies to beef up compliance. The webinar will review updates and cases from the past year as well as what to expect in the year ahead.

We’ve recently discussed whether the Seventh Circuit will weigh in on ascertainability in TCPA cases, the FCC’s recent ruling in Phillips v. Mozes, Inc. regarding whether “capturing” a phone number via text message is considered express consent, and Sterk v. Path, Inc., which clarified that the TCPA bars the improper use of an ATDS.

During tomorrow’s webinar, scheduled from 12 – 1 p.m. (EST), we will discuss:

  • Developments on the Class Action Front
    • Defenses: Ascertainability, Superiority, Predominance
    • Is prior express consent an element or an affirmative defense?
    • How are the courts defining an automatic telephone dialing system?
  • Agency
    •  Liability for the company, liability for corporate officers?
  • Looking Forward
    • Trends for 2015

Register now. One hour of CLE credit will be provided. Accredited states can be viewed on the registration page.
