THE FULL EPISODE of Deserve to Win (Ep. 6) – the CIPA episode – starring Josh Swigart – TCPAWorld
What a profile. This guy could be president one day. Could imagine his face on a coin.
So usually I would drag this out and promote it a bit more, but it just took us WAY too long to get this stuff out, so I’m going to punchline!
You saw some great clips from Josh’s Friday interview, but now you get the full episode. (You see how giving the tsar is?)
So for those who don’t know him. Josh Swigart is a denizen of the LONG TIME TCPA world and he basically invented the TCPA class action lawsuit with his former partner – we discuss this – Abbas Kazerounian.
In fact, Josh was the VERY FIRST lawyer I argued a TCPA class action against. If he hadn’t returned a call for me, I might never have become the Tsar (watch this clip for the story):

And naturally, Josh and I spent a lot of time going down memory lane in this episode, talking about past players and some important developments. For anyone wanting to understand how TCPAWorld came to be, this is a great primer for you.
But forget the past, we are all looking to the future here. And Josh and I are discussing THE FUTURE – which is data privacy and wiretap lawsuits (specifically CIPA.)
For those unaware, courts are uncertain whether recording information about web session visits by online consumers could constitute “electronic eavesdropping”. If so, some state laws, including the California Invasion of Privacy Act, allow private rights of action with MASSIVE statutory penalties of up to $5,000 per web visit. This means that the damages in these cases can reach TRILLIONS of dollars (unlike the simple multi-billion dollar cases that Troutman Firm handles day in and day out.)
You can see why this is attractive to the plaintiff bar and why I’m so keen to make sure my fan base is aware of these developments.
And, yes, we’ve already discussed CIPA – but more was needed.

So the TCPAWorld team got together and declared episode 6 to be the official “CIPA episode”.
In this INCREDIBLE episode, we break down:
- A general overview of CIPA and wiretap statutes and how they apply to consumer web sessions and website visits;
- A discussion of the hot trend of chat bot communications triggering complaints;
- A broader discussion of call recording laws and how they intersect with emerging wiretap claims;
- A practical discussion of how website operators can avoid liability;
- The Pennsylvania law change expands that state’s MASSIVELY important web sessions and data logging law; so what
- The BIG interview – Josh explains why he now focuses almost entirely on CIPA and wiretap cases. YOU CANNOT AFFORD TO MISS THIS.
No other law firm has offered this level of coverage (at least to my knowledge) on this critical topic, so you really MUST look deserve to win Ep 6.
So this is it. ENJOY. Also PLEASE – if you like the Czar and the hard working TCPAWorld team (and I know you do) – give us a like and share with your friends and colleagues. It really helps us small business guys compete against #biglaw when you get to know Troutman Firm and our content. Thanks!
