A number of child advocacy groups have filled comments at the FTC in response to its request for comment on its Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act (COPPA) rules. In their comments, the advocacy groups request that the FTC place new restrictions on children’s online activities. Specifically, the groups urge the FTC to expand the COPPA rules to include video game consoles (including online environments), mobile phones, and interactive television. The groups also urge the FTC to broaden the definition of prohibited personal information to include data such as zip codes, IP addresses, gender, and other pieces of information that are used to track customer behavior. Comments are due July 12, 2010. Docket P104503, COPPA Rule Review. To view the FTC public notice, click here.
