The FTC announced that it has launched a review of, and is inviting public comment on, its rules implementing the Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act (COPPA). The FTC believes that “changes to the online environment over the past five years, including children’s increasing use of mobile technology to access the Internet, warrant reexamining the rules.” The FTC particularly is interested in the implications for children raised by the increasing availability of mobile communications, interactive gaming, and other interactive media. The FTC is also examining whether the rules prohibiting the collection, use, or disclosure of “personal information” should be expanded to include information such as persistent IP addresses, mobile geolocation data, and information collected in connection with behavioral advertising. Written comments are due June 30, 2010. A copy of the Request for Public Comment can be found here. An article on the topic can be found here.
