*7 Wars: FCC Considers Key Punch Revocation in Effort to Stop Robocalls

This article first appeared on TCPAland and is republished here with permission.

As we reported here recently, the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) is seeking public comment on a number of key issues impacting the scope of the Telephone Consumer Protection Act (TCPA). One issue of profound significance to be addressed by the FCC, is how, exactly a party may revoke prior express consent to receive so-called robocalls after they had previously agreed to receive such calls.

Earlier this year in ACA Int’l, the D.C. Circuit Court of Appeals upheld the FCC’s earlier rulings that consumer consent to robocalls can be revoked, at least where their contract does not say otherwise. The Court also blessed the FCC’s determination that such revocation can take place via “any reasonable means.”
