A recent bill to protect child privacy has met with a barrage of frantic disapproving nods from Google, Twitter and Facebook. You’d think that child privacy would be an important issue for the tech giants, but evidently anything that hampers their ability to rule the masses is a big no-no. The FTA plans to give the Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act of 1998 (COPPA) a makeover is not being taken well. Objections to proposed changes have already been filed so that the companies don’t have to give up their ability to track their users. We’ve taken a step backwards from dealing with issues such as cell phone spyware and PC monitoring software to literally having to worry about tech giants fundamentally choosing their own wealth over privacy.
