Hello new subscribers! Since I can tell from my comments that many of you are YouTube Content Creators, it is important that you note the following:

DISCUSSION IS PROVIDED FOR INFORMATIONAL PURPOSES ONLY AND IS NOT TO BE CONSTRUED AS LEGAL ADVICE. INDIVIDUALS INTERESTED IN THE LEGAL TOPICS DISCUSSED IN THIS VIDEO SHOULD CONSULT WITH THEIR OWN COUNSEL.

And also...it's definitely not made for kids. :)

I know, I know, legal disclaimers and all, but they are important as every given person will have different circumstances and I can't advise folks directly on their own legal matters without a formal relationship. Thanks for watching!


You shouldn't have to do it.

YouTube should simply give notice and get consent in compliance with COPPA.

But they aren't.

So is one button press able to significantly reduce your exposure to the Federal Trade Commission (FTC)...even if they ultimately disagree with your video labeling?

It might be.

Context is king...in Virtual Legality.
