COPPA Enforcement To Get a New Home
CHILDREN’S PRIVACY—U.S.February 19, 2013
Broadcasting & Cable reports that the Federal Trade Commission is in the process of moving enforcement of the Children's Online Privacy Protection Act (COPPA) from its Advertising Practices division to its Privacy and Identity Protection division. "The idea is to centralize the privacy programs under one roof so that the COPPA side can take advantage of the expertise that the privacy division already has," a source stated. The move was launched by outgoing Chairman Jon Leibowitz and will take several months to complete, the report states.
