On September 13, 2019, Florida-based company Yodel Technologies LLC ("Yodel") petitioned the Federal Communications Commission ("FCC") for a declaratory ruling concerning the use of soundboard technology. Specifically, the petition addresses the question of whether sound- board technology should be considered a pre-recorded voice message, or "robocall," within the meaning of the Telephone Consumer Protection Act ("TCPA"). This petition comes on the heels of a similar petition submitted in February 2019, by NorthStar Alarm Services, LLC in which they sought a declaratory ruling regarding whether soundboard tech- nology violates the TCPA. As of this date, that petition still remains pending.
