EPIC today filed a notice of intent in ACA Int'l v. FCC, a case about the consumer protections from unwanted and harassing phone calls. The Telephone Consumer Protection Act prohibits most automated solicitations unless the customer has given consent. Last summer, the Federal Communications Commission issued an order giving consumers more control to limit harassing telemarketing practices. Several marketing companies opposed the FCC order, which EPIC will now defend. EPIC contributed to the establishment of the TCPA and has submitted numerous comments to help ensure the Act's effective implementation.
