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!


Since starting our Virtual Legality series regarding YouTube, the Federal Trade Commission (FTC), and the Children's Online Privacy Protection Act (COPPA), we have been contacted by numerous YouTube content creators expressing their concerns, thanks, and, in some instances, information whether received from YouTube, the FTC, or both.

In the case of popular YouTube Channel FuturisticHub, permission was given for us to discuss the information they've shared with and been given by the FTC.

When combined with the FTC pointing us all to read their complaint against YouTube, we have at least the start of something to go on.

There are targets and then there are targets...in Virtual Legality.
