State legislators will not wait to cover online privacy for children

Hello folks,

Coppa is the is the Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act, which was signed in to law many years ago. Unfortunately, it may be time to either have it rewritten or updated. The fact is, companies like TikTok do not care much about the law, and in fact, one country already fined them for a violation of their version of the law.

At least here in the United States, different states aren’t waiting for our Congress to go ahead and fix what may be brken.

The article is titled State legislators aren’t waiting for Congress to regulate children’s online privacy and it comes from Cyberscoop.

Here are two paragraphs from the article.

After a year of stalled efforts in Congress to pass expanded children’s privacy legislation, states are plowing ahead with their own efforts to address growing concerns about how tech companies collect and use children’s data.

At least five states, including New Jersey, Oregon, Texas, Virginia and West Virginia, are considering children’s privacy-related legislation while several other states are set to reintroduce legislation that expired last session.

Some states may consider having rules similar to California, which may from what I have read, taken the lead on privacy issues. I don’t remember if this is still the case, so don’t quote me on this.

The problem here is lack of enforcement. This is why TikTok has been in so much trouble. Countries are noticing, but yet what about other big tech companies?

It talks about what states are doing now.

Instead of me breaking apart the article, why not check it out and see what you think? The comment boards will await you on this one.
