Well we’re back folks and you cannot miss this.
Dusting off the fun and sun of summer, the TCPAWorld team is back in action. We breakdown all the big TCPA developments over the last few months, including:
- The passage of TRACED and Stopping Bad Robocalls Act in the Senate and House respectively, and the gap between the two statutes and how Congress might ultimately harmonize these enactments to get to a final Anti-Robocall Bill;
- The Supreme Court’s battle for the soul of legislative power in this nation, using the TCPA as its pawn— and what it may mean for future TCPA rulings handed down by regulatory agencies;
- We review the ATDS landscape and discuss why it really looks like a true majority position is developing surrounding the definition of the ATDS; and
- We breakdown the Eleventh Circuit’s huge ruling in Salcedo holding that unwanted text messages do not necessarily cause concrete injury for Article III standing–including an analysis of what makes Salcedo difference from other Spokeo decisions.
And then we get to the incredible interview with Margaret Daum. What a hitter!
Margaret spent over a decade conducting sensitive and high-profile congressional investigations on the hill. She was actually part of the powerful Permanent Subcommittee on Investigations. My goodness– who better to help guide us through the process of these two bills (TRACED and SBRA) merging together to become one–and how best to get me (the Czar) to testify before Congress. (And who better to help guide you through any sticky Congressional investigation in the extremely unfortunate event you or someone you love (or work for) gets sucked into one.)
Per usual this episode of Unprecedented is jam-packed, fast-moving TCPA excitement. Enjoy! You can find it here.
And a I teased today, next week we will have the inventor of DirectDrop ringless voicemail on the podcast to discuss how DirectDrop is fighting back against the notion that the TCPA applies to this technology. What a huge interview. So pleased to bring this to you.
