When the Federal Trade Commission (FTC) initially asked for comments to the Children's Online Privacy Protection Act (COPPA) rule, it likely didn't expect the issue to get as big as it has become. But though now tasked with sifting through a deluge of creator and "industry" comments, those are not the only voices directed at the FTC.
What are some of the things that COPPA's fiercest advocates are saying?
What can we learn from the rhetoric and self-selected targets of organizations like the Campaign for a Commercial-Free Childhood?
And how can that better inform our understanding of COPPA, the FTC, and the current enforcement debate?
You can't win a fight you don't know you're in...in Virtual Legality.
