The TCPA is the Telephone Consumer Protection Act, which was passed into law in 1991. The Federal Communications Commission (FCC) issued rules and regulations implementing the TCPA which then 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:
In general, telemarketing calls, unsolicited faxes, prerecorded calls and autodialed calls to cellphones are violations of the TCPA, and the people receiving these communications can bring suit in local state court (including in 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.
