Event Details

Join TechFreedom on July 8 for a Capitol Hill briefing on “COPPA: The Past, Present & Future of Children’s Privacy & Media.” Two panels of experts will explore the Federal Trade Commission’s recent changes to regulations issued under the Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act (COPPA), which governs sites that collect personal information from children or offer social networking functionality to them.

The first panel will explore the trade-offs involved in COPPA. Is the law actually helping to protect children? How should we measure its success — and its costs? Will the new rules help parents or hurt childrens’ media? Does COPPA burden some sites more than others? How should policymakers address children’s privacy in the future? These are some of the questions that will be addressed by a panel, including:

The second panel will explore the legal and compliance questions raised by the revised rules, the FTC’s attempt to address them in Frequently Asked Questions, and the possibility of legal challenges to the rules, which become effective on July 1. How difficult is compliance with the revised rules? Might some aspects of the rules be struck down in court? What First Amendment rights are at stake? As the FTC approaches its 100th anniversary next year, what does the controversy over the COPPA rule revision say about the agency and the need for institutional reforms? The panel will include

Space is limited so RSVP now. You can also join the Facebook event to see who else will be coming—but please RSVP. A livestream of the event will be available here. You can follow the conversation on Twitter on the #COPPA hashtag.
