Be sure to check out our recent advisory discussing two new Federal Communications Commission (FCC) declaratory rulings that involve communicating with cell phones via autodialed calls and texts, and by prerecorded call.  The rulings respectively allow the consent necessary for such calls to come from intermediaries for text-based social networks, and for package-delivery services to rely on assurances by package sender that addressees consent to autodialed/prerecorded calls/texts with delivery information.  Along the way, the FCC makes several broad and business-friendly statements that should help clarify current uncertainty surrounding the TCPA, and hopefully serve as a defense for some in what has become a booming TCPA class action practice.  You can access the advisory here.
