Increase in TCPA Litigation: What you Need to Know
by: The Knowledge GroupNovember 03, 2017
In recent years, courts have started cracking down on illegal telemarketing, leading to a noticeable increase in litigation regarding the Telephone Consumer Protection Act (TCPA). For consumers, this action comes as a welcome protection of their privacy.
For businesses, though, the increase in TCPA litigation can lead to some troubling concerns; now, even an unsolicited text message can land a business in hot water.
Businesses have long had to walk a fine line between legal, ethical marketing and acts that violate that TCPA. As courts start putting more and more pressure on enforcing the TCPA, though, that line is now blurred more than ever before.
Remaining compliant is easily doable so long as you understand what constitutes a violation of the TCPA; this, however, is often easier said than done.
Given the current landscape of telemarketing and the seriousness of the attempts to enforce the TCPA, it is now more important than ever for businesses to fully understand what is and isn’t allowed under the TCPA and to evaluate their own practices to make sure they are remaining compliant.
