The U.S. Federal Trade Commission has announced the program for its workshop Oct. 7 that will examine the Children's Online Privacy Protection Act. There will be four panel discussions focusing on the current state of children's privacy, COPPA's scope, a look at definitions and misconceptions within the law, and the uses of personal identifiers. The FTC said the workshop will also touch on "increased use of [internet-of-things] devices, social media, educational technology, and general audience platforms hosting third-party child-directed content." The workshop will add to the commission's review and request for public comments on potential COPPA amendments.
