You Have Rights Under The Telephone Consumer Protection Act

What is the Telephone Consumer Protection Act of 1991?

The TCPA, was passed into law in 1991. The Federal Communications Commission (FCC) issued rules and regulations implementing the TCPA, which went into effect on December 20, 1992. A number of court challenges to parts of the TCPA have been brought. All failed.

The TCPA was a merging of two bills in Congress, and it deals with several distinct issues:

• Use of automated dialing equipment and prerecorded messages. 
• Telemarketing calls using “live” callers 
• Facsimile (fax) transmissions

In general, telephone solicitations, telemarketer calls, unsolicited faxes, prerecorded calls, and autodialer robocalling to cell phones are violations of the TCPA. 

In addition, the TCPA restricts unsolicited SMS and text messages to mobile devices.

People receiving these communications can bring suit in local state court (including small claims court). The statute provides remedies that include statutory damages, generally from $500 to $1500 for each violation, which are paid to the consumer.
