The explosion in robocalls—nearly 5 billion per month — driven by technological advances has allowed anyone using an Internet-based phone system to make cheap virtually untraceable calls worldwide.  So while bipartisanship is rare these days, the epidemic has driven the Federal Communication Commission and the Congress to action to stop the scourge of illegal and unwanted robocalls to cell phones.  This panel discusses how the Telephone Consumer Protection Act (TCPA) legislation has served for many years to legally combat some such calls, but how new technology and legislative solutions are now being leveraged to take a more aggressive approach to protect the consumer’s right to privacy.
