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 with the period for comment extended to December 11th, YouTube has finally come out with a summary of what it, itself has submitted to the FTC.
What are the core components of YouTube's comment?
How does it frame YouTube's previous actions on this issue?
And why should content creators not take it as evidence that YouTube is "on their side"?
With great data comes great responsibility...in Virtual Legality.
