Youtube & Law Changes! FTC Coppa Rules We Need To Comply

Last Update: November 13, 2019

Hello Fams:) I have just gone through all my channels to be 100% certain that I adhere to the NEW FTC and Youtube Rules, and I wish to alert and quickly recommend that you don't procrastinate doing such 2 minute action yourself.

The Children's Online Privacy Protection Act Coppa

As this a NEW thing I am sure as things in the world have often done, a relaese like this will be POLICED and ENFORCED early on in the piece.

All I had to do was go into my youtibe studio Beta (Classic des'nt have the setting}

Ckick on settings>Advanced Settings> Audience> and choose NO my audience is not for Children.

If you have a child related Channel you really want to make it clear to YouTube asap that you do, as a good saying goes:) The Early Bird Gets The Worm.

Here is the Official YouTube Creators Video about it

A child is regarded as under 13 year olds. I don't want to risk anything so I simply set to No My channel is NOT for kids:)

Thanks for this, Robert.

I don't know why I didn't see your post earlier, lol! I thought nobody wrote about this so I just went and wrote a whole blog post about the new COPPA rules too.

But people need to know about this for sure so I guess another blog post about it doesn't hurt... :)

Hey my sis:) must be a great minds thang. !
I bet your blog is an extensive and intellect review
It is and I would be surprised if a few more get wrote too.

It is Important and our blogs come and go in the news feed, but getting caught out from simply not knowing or even forgetting could really hurt?

I am in no way legal savvy, but when something like this comes out it often "pays" big those enforcing industries.I reckon:( Yes its a masterpiece :)

Thanks.. :) But you're right, it's better to know what's happening, from wherever it might be else it might take a bad turn for us.

And yes, it makes the FTC money, the governments. But at least Youtube gave us some time to go through things and to make sure that we're all compliant.

Thanks for this vital information, rules that could leave you unprotected should you not select your channel as either children or non-child related can often be overlooked and this simple declaration can save you time and hassle figuring out what went wrong later.
