Recently, YouTube just got fined for $170k for violating the Child Online Privacy Protection Act (or COPPA for short). This has prompted YouTube to tell its content creators to start marking ALL of their works (not just recent ones) as if they are made for kids or not. What is COPPA? COPPA was made in 1998 and basically means that any websites that collects data on it's users (youtube, google, facebook, etc) can NOT collect data from users under the age of 13 (AKA <4745 days alive on the planet earth). A lot of people are in fear of what this will mean for their content, which has lead to fear mongering and a petition to change these "outdated" laws. Honestly, if you were to hear about COPPA BEFORE all this YouTube shit happened, wouldn't you be in support of it? Lets be honest, when we were kids we were to dumbest pieces of shit and as soon as we saw that super cool G.I.-robo-dino toy or cutey-furby-spa toy, we all though "I NEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEED IT!!!!!!!" I am in support of COPPA, I think its good for preventing companies from getting early data on young children who's parents are too damn lazy to check on what their looking at. If you want more info on this, don't watch the YouTube videos on it There is ALOT of misinformation going around, including that you'll get fined $42,000. Currently I've only seen 2 videos that actually bloody understand whats going on. THIS video by PhoenixSC And THIS video by MrEnter Watch them both and let me know what you think about all this.
