That seems to be the case.So... If I don't make videos for money and I don't care whether people comment on them or not, can I just mark my videos as 'for kids' and move on with my life?
Does "adulting your videos up" really protect you, or are you still liable due to using colorful images (cubes) that can attract kids? It looked to me like that might make you liable, even if you have other kid-inappropriate content.In that case, in the words of one YouTuber, I'll just have to 'adult my videos up' and mark them as not for kids. Sure, they won't be advertiser friendly, but at least they'll be open to searches, comments and playlist addition.
Ok, I won't search it up then... thanks for telling us who don't know what means so we don't have to be traumatisedI searched up ‘elsagate’ and....yeah, I feel nauseated and disturbed.
What do the creators gain from traumatising young children....I feel sorry for those children!
I'm just surprised you posted something lol. but I do agreeI don't really know much about what's going on, I did watch like half of matpats video on it, and from my limited knowledge, it's just that YouTube has a big mouth. He goes into a lot of detail, I won't, but basically in interviews they've said things that are just bragging about how many kid watch their videos, EVEN THOUGH you aren't allowed to get a Google account if you are under 13, so that means permission, however implicit, from their parents and therefore is not in violation of COPPA.
BUT then comes yt and their big mouth bragging how many kids they get watching their vids, and COPPA has evidence to do what they've now done.
The FTC's new implementation of the rule is directly in contrast to COPPA's original intent, just FYI. The purpose of COPPA was to give more control to parents over their own children's personal info. However, this new rule takes away that control. Watch the video I posted before. It explains it all.So you dislike disallowing people to collect, use and share children’s personal information? Seems legit
As I said before, it's not YouTube's fault. It's the FTC's implementation of the rule which makes us unhappy, and since they are the only ones who have the legal authority to change the way COPPA is carried out, that interpretation will become the new rule. It really doesn't matter whether the original COPPA was a good thing, because it's here to stay. We should be focusing on whether the new changes to COPPA are good and necessary, something I would disagree with.COPPA overall is a good and necessary act. It's the way YouTube is enforcing it that makes us unhappy.
I'm not sure I completely agree with this. Clearly all the FTC cares about is whether or not the information is gathered on kids. It seems to me that YouTube could find a middle ground in terms of how they treat videos marked for kids. It seems they're still allowed to do contextualized ads, but not personalized ads. It seems almost like YouTube has adopted the policy of completely eliminating monetization, not recommending kids videos, and making them hard to search specifically to try to force the FTC to give way to complaints about the policy.As I said before, it's not YouTube's fault.
