Defining 'Child-Directed' and Addressing New Technology: Discussing COPPA Updates at CARU 2020

Sep 23, 2020 by BBB National Programs

On September 22, the 2020 CARU Conference kicked off the Fall Series with a keynote where we heard from Children's Online Privacy Protection Act (COPPA) experts: the Federal Trade Commission’s (FTC)'s Peder Magee, and Phyllis Marcus, a Partner at Hunton Andrews Kurth.

During their fireside chat our speakers addressed the burning questions that everyone wants to know. Why did the FTC take another look at the COPPA Rule when it hasn't been the standard 10 years between reviews? Speakers address the technological, advertising, and larger issues on the table during this Rule review, such as whether the factors that determine if content is "child-directed" are still valid.
