How come YouTube is relying on customers to comply with COPPA?
Hi everyone. I read that in September last year, the FTC fined YouTube for violating COPPA. As a result, YouTube is requiring its users to identify which videos are kids oriented. However, I feel like YouTube (the defendant) was accused of breaking the law, yet they’re going to hold US accountable when it was THEIR fault. Why are they counting on us to comply? They said if we don’t do it properly, the FTC could find us. But we didn’t break the law, YouTube did. What’s going on here???

The FTC imposes specific requirements on website operators (including online web services - like YouTube) related to content and its access to children under 13.
