Twenty years of COPPA: A discussion

Recently, TechFreedom held an event to examine the Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act, which will celebrate its 20th birthday in October. The law regulates the collection and use of information from, or about, children age 13 or under in the United States. In this panel discussion, led by TechFreedom General Counsel Jim Dunstan, we hear from Maneesha Mithal, associate director of the FTC's Bureau of Consumer Protection's Division of Privacy and Identity Protection; Phyllis Marcus, now a partner at Hunton Williams, but formerly chief of staff at the FTC's Division of Advertising Practices; and Sara Kloek, director of education policy at the Software and Information Industry Association regarding how effective COPPA is, how it might change in the future, and how European privacy law might affect the way Congress sees COPPA going forward.
