How to easily comment on the upcoming COPPA FTC regulation.

If you need some background on this, watch this excellent video from Arlo.

Here's a link to comment. In your comment you'll want to include the text “COPPA Rule Review, 16 CFR Part 312, Project No. P195404,”

So what's this about? Without getting into the fine details, YouTube has had an issue with videos targeting young children. You may have heard about those weird elsa/spiderman videos. YouTube collects data on people watching videos. Apparently, you aren't supposed to do that for people under that age of 13... whoops! So now the FTC has decided that going after individual content creators for any videos that may look like they're intended for children with massive, life-ruining fines. Why go after people who AREN'T collecting any data on children? GOOD QUESTION!

Many of your favorite YouTubers may shut their channels down out of fear if this goes through. Please let the FTC know that this is unfair and just plain awful. I would appreciate it very much if you could leave them a comment on this.

Oh, and another important thing you could do is to sign the petition because every little bit helps. I'd appreciate it very much.
