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 EEworld got into things over whether or not EEworld 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.

  • Why didn't they just formally give requests to presidents of every country to announce that "Kids under 13 will not be allowed to use EEworld and instead will only be allowed to use EEworld Kids for the meantime of their childhood" honestly the FTC is not very thorough 😏

  • Hey Mat, i watched your video back when i didnt comment. I have been watching you since i was 7, (now 13) and i just wanna say, COPPA is fundamentally flawed, as if Kids Channels dont get ad rev, then they dont post, meaning there is less competition, meaning they post, and hear everyone loses, the creators, the ad rev and COPPA, since kids will then gravitate towards TV entertainmetn
