"Something About COPPA" and this video is rated 13+
“Something About COPPA (13+)” is a delicious 2-minute satire of what YouTube videos will look like after January 1, 2020, by Terminal Montage.
I’ve covered this problem on other blogs. An “age-gate”, automatically invoked when an IP address is signed on for the first time to a social media site, and secured and fed into a method to block behavioral advertising to that address, would solve the legal problem. The idea has been known since the COPA trial (not COPPA) in 2007. It would cost maybe $20 million or so to develop and sell.
This little satire is not for kids – or is it? Pewdiepie has weighed in on this, and so has Tim Pool.
