So I didn’t realize this was going to be such a big deal.
Apparently many hundreds of people have already signed up to attend my huge (and getting huger by the minute) CCPA/TCPA cross-over webinar event sponsored by DNC.com and Contact Center Compliance. The webinar is totally FREE–you’ll just have to agree that we can sell your personal information. Ha.
I will be presenting with legendary privacy guru Lydia de la Torre who will be joining us from Brussels and who will be doing her best to reign me in. It looks like everyone is planning to tune in for this thing–including a pack of privacy lawyers from rival law firms. Even the competition wants to know what the Czar has cooked up– fun!
But let’s be honest, compared to the TCPA, the CCPA is rather smallish. The rights are limited. The obligations are but a handful. And the defined terms are way better defined than anything in the TCPA . Plus the damages are downright reasonable compared to the massive exposure available in TCPA private rights of action. Frankly, I’m more worried about damage from people hacking the request verification process than anything else…
Have I said too much already?
Now I’m not saying the CCPA isn’t a big deal–it surely is– and I’m looking forward to clicking every “Do Not Sell My Personal Information” button I come across starting January 1, 2020. I’m just saying the TCPA remains a bigger deal (IMO), especially with Congress set to cement the statute as the nation’s crown jewel response to the ongoing robocall epidemic in this nation. So don’t go chasing waterfalls TCPAWorld, please stick to the murky rivers and mile-deep and wide lakes that you’re used to.
That said, do tune into the big webinar on Wednesday to get a breakdown of the CCPA as it applies to the TCPA that only I can provide. And then we’ll decide whether to launch CCPAWorld.com or not. 😉
In all seriousness, this webinar will be deeply informative but I’ll still make it as much fun as possible. Squire has always been your first choice for privacy law advice and class action litigation defense and I am happy to be a small part of such a powerful and capable platform. Wednesday, November 20, 2019– 10 am pacific. Be there.
