The FTC has finally released its long-awaited report on the implementation of the Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act (COPPA). A panel of children’s privacy experts and COPPA experts explored the FTC’s proposed changed to COPPA and what they mean for Internet services, innovation, free speech, privacy and child safety. This free luncheon discussion was co-hosted by TechFreedom and the Family Online Safety Institute , an international, non-profit membership organization working to develop a safer Internet by identifying and promoting best practices, tools and methods that also respect free speech.
