FTC Hosting COPPA Roundtable Today
PRIVACY LAW—U.S.June 2, 2010
The Federal Trade Commission (FTC) is hosting a workshop today to determine whether the use of new technologies and mobile broadband warrant an update to its rule on the Children's Online Privacy Protection Act (COPPA), Tech Daily Dose reports. The public roundtable comes as the commission embarks on its requisite five-year review of the COPPA rule. The FTC wants to determine whether the rule can be applied to new mobile technologies, interactive television and gaming, the report states. Panelists are debating the law's "actual knowledge" standard and its definition of "personal information," among other topics. The event is being Webcast.
