Overview

The Telephone Consumer Protection Act (TCPA) continues to present significant challenges and legal risks for companies seeking to communicate with consumers via their mobile devices.  The TCPA is unforgiving: no industry is immune, existing relationships do not matter, and the law is not limited to calls and text messages to just individuals, meaning B-B communications are also at risk.  Given the TCPA’s statutory damages provision allowing aggrieved plaintiffs to recover up to $1,500 per violation with no cap on class-wide awards, the risk of non-compliance is significant.  As consumers continue to rely on their mobile devices for communications, entertainment and news, reaching them in this medium becomes increasingly more important, but also more risky.
