5 Things Parents Should Know About COPPA

Unless you live in Mad Men times, you've probably answered "yes" to these questions. Then, you should have heard about COPPA, right? As a new parent, I didn't until recently. I assumed it was the Barry Manilow song. However, COPPA is the Children's Online Privacy Protection Act, a U.S. federal law enforced by the Federal Trade Commission (FTC) to protect the privacy of children when they go online. The new set of rules went into effect this summer and are an update to a law Congress passed in 1998, when few could have conceived of YouTube, Xbox Live or iPads. The recent changes cover photos, audio recordings and geolocations. Safe - The Certificate in Safe Social Networking. Free e-safety resources for Schools (ages 7-16)

HTG Explains: What the DMCA Is and How it Affects the Internet

The DMCA has a number of provisions, but we’ll be focusing on the ones that have most affected the web we have today. In particular, we’ll be focusing on the “notice and takedown” provisions that provide “safe harbor” for many service providers, as well as the anti-circumvention provisions that criminalize many common actions. Safe Harbor & Takedown Notices The DMCA extends a “safe harbor” to “service providers,” defined as “a provider of online services or network access, or the operator of facilities therefor.” For example, if a user uploads a copyrighted video to YouTube, posts a copyrighted article on Tumblr, places a copyrighted file on Dropbox and shares links publically, or just hosts a copyright-infringing website with a web hosting provider, the provider of the service — YouTube, Tumblr, Dropbox, or the web host — is exempt from liability.
