The FTC has proposed a number of revisions to the Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act (COPPA). In comments recently filed with the FTC, a wide range of voices criticized these proposed changes as undermining the ability of operators to provide websites and services to children and raising First Amendment concerns. Join us for a discussion with leading experts on the current state of COPPA as we debate fundamental questions about whether COPPA is even effective, and how it should be reformed.

This event is co-sponsored by the Information Technology & Innovation Foundation (ITIF), TechFreedom, and the Family Online Safety Institute (FOSI). Lunch will be provided. Participate in this discussion with #COPPA and watch the live webcast on this event page.
