Okay. Let’s huddle and talk TCPA for a moment. On July 6, 2020, in Barr v. AAPC, the Supreme Court upheld the TCPA and simply severed the unconstitutional 2015 government-debt exemption from the broader statute. So, here we are. Many of you likely already know our TCPAWorld defense team led by the Czar himself, Eric J. Troutman. And our TCPAWorld team had a lot to say about this ruling. As such, I want to share with our Consumer Privacy World family our TCPAWorld breakdown in case you missed it:
- You can get to know our TCPAWorld team through their one-of-a-kind podcasts discussing Barr;
- Eric’s analysis of the decision: “A Dark Day for Free Speech: Supreme Court Upholds Statute Supposedly Preventing Robocalls–But at what Cost?“;
- Visual learner? Well, Eric’s webinar breaks the case down too, HERE;
- Play-by-play type? TCPAWorld breaks the news on decision day in real-time HERE;
- What does Barr mean for potential Broadnet reconsideration? I discuss that HERE;
- What about that pending Facebook v. Duguid petition that Supreme Court may consider? Well, the day after Barr, Facebook filed a supplemental briefing relying, in part, on Czar’s TCPAWorld commentary and today the Court granted cert – HERE you go; and
- Speaking of Facebook, what is going on with ATDS anyway – well, follow TCPAWorld’s ATDS real-time update HERE.
What does this mean for the future? Busy, busy, busy. Stay tuned.
