Upcoming Webinar on TCPA Issues for 2014

On February 6, 2014, members of Hogan Lovells’ Telephone Consumer Privacy Act (TCPA) Practice will host a webinar on recent TCPA developments and key compliance challenges for 2014.  Among the topics that will be covered are how the Federal Communications Commission will apply the new “prior express written consent” requirements; what constitutes an “automatic telephone dialing system”; and whether and how the TCPA applies to mobile offerings and other new technologies and services.

Organizations are increasingly at risk under the TCPA, which imposes restrictions on telemarketing and the use of automated telephone equipment, affecting any organization that engages with consumers through text messages, prerecorded calls, faxes, or other advanced technologies. Regulators and plaintiffs’ class-action attorneys are targeting alleged TCPA violations, and thousands of TCPA class actions seeking millions of dollars have been filed in recent years.
