3:15 – 4:15 p.m. Government and Industry Efforts to Combat Illegal Robocalls
Illegal “robocalls” remain a key focus of industry, as well as legislators and regulators at both the federal and state level. Our first panel will explore trends in illegal robocall activity and various initiatives by government and industry stakeholders to protect consumers from such calls. Panelists will examine recent developments in the fight against illegal robocalls, including the enactment of the TRACED Act, current and expected FCC robocall proceedings, SHAKEN/STIR deployment, government enforcement actions, state laws and proposals to mandate SHAKEN/STIR, industry traceback efforts, and more. What are the various players in the ecosystem doing and can these efforts be expected to provide relief to consumers? How will the TRACED Act impact the various initiatives underway in the robocalling environment?

4:15 – 4:20 p.m. Break
4:20 – 5:20 p.m. Unfinished Business with the TCPA
Even before the passage of the TRACED Act, the FCC had before it a range of critical TCPA interpretation questions and issues, including the very consequential question of what is an “ATDS” and a range of consent, revocation and exception/exemption conditions. The agency also was in the midst of implementing its determination to stand up a reassigned number database. The panel will examine the range of issues the FCC is considering or implementing and where they might leave legitimate businesses and other callers seeking clarity and reasonable safe harbors.
