You're absolutely right. I guess I should have said it's not entirely YouTube's fault. A lot of the blame can still go on the FTC, because of their new interpretation of the law. Obviously, the FTC isn't forcing YouTube to do exactly what they're doing, but if the FTC hadn't edited COPPA in the first place, YouTube wouldn't have felt as if they needed to change their own policies. In other words, there isn't one single scapegoat for all the problems surrounding COPPA, but if the FTC doesn't change their interpretation of the law then YouTube won't feel the need to change. It's sort of a domino effect, if that makes sense.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.
