    Here we go again, another big, scary change coming to the platform that has Creators shaking in their boots. I'm talking about COPPA, the Children’s Online Privacy and Protection Act. Now COPPA has been around for a while but not too long ago the FTC and YouTube got into things over whether or not YouTube was in violation of it. The results have a lot of channels - family, gaming, art, and many more - scared for their jobs, their livelihoods, and their homes on this platform. Today, I want to talk about the reality of COPPA going into 2020 and what we REALLY have to worry about and what we don't.

          You seem deeply upset about youtube monitoring your access to children boy. Anyone checked your hard drive lately? Maybe they should. We coudl make that happen..........

                                              I’m 16 and even I understand that there’s a thing called bills that have to be paid with money so taking about 85% of that money you earn on YouTube is going to you know affect your daily life pretty badly so I’m just confused and don’t understand why this is happening it’s not YouTube’s job to babysit peoples children PS for some stupid reason to me what COPPA Is doing doesn’t sound legal i’m also sorry for posting an essay.

                                                    How about youtube proper changes its name to something like youtube teen+. Every time a youtube link opens it will redirect to a homepage or have a pop up that has you select youtube kids or youtube teen+. kids doesn't require an account. teen+ requires an account.
                                                    Every new account and every existing account when first opened next year asked the following: "Are you the owner of this account? If not get the account owner or leave the site until the account owner is available. Account owner please reenter your password. Are you 13 or older? Do you agree that only you have access to this account or that any other viewers using this account are 13 or older or have your permission to use this account and view content potentially unsuited for children? Do you agree it is your responsibility to log out and keep your login information private if you wish to keep children from accessing your account on a shared or unshared device?"
                                                    as youtube proper will become teen+, all content is automatically categorized that way regardless of actual content. and instead youtube sends notices to creators asking them to upload duplicates of their videos on youtube kids if it is both aimed at and suitable for children. Creator is responsible for this judgement, following the rules for kids content, and any consequences for unsuitable content.

                                                                                            This is not legal advice but common sense advice:
                                                                                            According to all I have read:

                                                                                            That way any child viewing your content without thise permissions is in violation and since Google/Youtube, whom does not disclose to content creators the accounts that are under the age of 13 they can be held liable for breaking their terms you agreed to of being a 13+ account and that all accounts are such unless the have parental permission. That the platform known as Youtube is 13+ and all those under the age of 13 must have parental consent and that your content is for 13+. Google/Youtube have failed also in giving the Content Creators a means to select 13+ only, unless the under age of 13 has notarized written consent to view 13+ content, as their viewership restrictions with an auto block on any accounts under the age of 13. Google/Youtube does not have it where Content Creators have a Homepage in which they can have their own terms & privacy agreements and requirements to view any of their other pages and content. The Content creator does not have the EASY ACCESS to block or ban an ACCOUNT USER they deem is not following their terms, privacy or restrictions. All control of ALL DATA and PROFITS OF SOLD DATA IS SOLELY IN THE CONTROL OF GOOGLE/YOUTUBE.
                                                                                            CONTENT CREATORS DID NOT HIRE GOOGLKE/YOUTUBE TO COLLECT SAID DATA BUT GOOGLE/YOUTUBE HIRED CONTENT CREATORS TO SUBMIT CONTENT TO RECEIVE PAYMENT. IF CONTENT CREATORS WERE THE ONES WHO HIRED GOOGLE/YOUTUBE THEY WOULD BE REQUIRED TO BE GIVEN ALL THE DATA ON ALL THE ACCOUNTS THAT VIEWED THEIR CONTENT AS TERMS OF HIRE AND ALL THE FUNDS FROM SAID DATA WOULD BE PAID TO THE CONTENT CREATOR. THEN THE CONTENT CREATOR WOULD PAY GOOGKE/YOUTUBE OUT OF THE FUNDS COLLECTED. BUT SINCE GOOGLE/YOUTUBE COLLECT THE FUNDS, HAS SOLE CONTROL CONCERNING THE DATA COLLECTED, DOES NOT DISCLOSE THE DATA COLLECTED OF THOSE WHO VIEW THE CONTENT TO THE CONTENT CREATOR AND GOOGLE/YOUTUBE HIRED BY PAYING CONTENT CREATOR OUT OF FUNDS GOOGLE/YOUTUBE COLLECTED IN THEIR NORMAL BUSINESS ACTIONS. ALSO GOOGLE/YOUTUBE PLACES ADS ON CONTENT REGARDLESS OF BEING MONETIZED OR NOT WITHOUT BENEFIT TO THE CONTENT CREATORS THUS IT IS GOOGLE/YOUTUBE'S NORMAL BUSINESS PRACTICES TO MAKE PROFITS FROM ADS REGARDLESS OF A CONTENT CREATOR GAINING PAYMENT FROM GOOGLE/YOUTUBE FOR THEIR CONTENT!!!!

                                                                                            AS A CONTENT CREATOR YOU SHOULD HAVE IN MY OPINION:
                                                                                            A parental permission form on a link for parents to download and a place to email it to you in pdf form or mail it to you.
                                                                                            A Content Creator should have your own terms and privacy to best protect themselves.
