Public Service Announcement

No really.
It's not just more tasteless videos embedded in lieu of content.

SFO has a very good Readers Digest condensed version of the looming calamity with regard to COPPA in this video. He quotes directly from the legislation and it is truly an example of terrifying obliviousness.

The Quartering has a slightly more in depth analysis. Whatever you think of Jeremy, he actually does a good job here of laying this out blow by blow from the perspective of a YouTuber that creates video game content. He delves a bit deeper into the practical implications of this, especially given the recent and current behavior of You Tube.

Note that this appears that this road to perdition is indeed paved with the best of intentions and far more ignorance than malice. The government regulators, somewhat bewildered at the response have had enough of a neuron fire to ask for public input until December 9th.

Be polite. Be respectful, and explain in small words why this is an incredibly bad way of solving an actual concern. 

In the meantime we're holding auditions for COPPA compliant Science Babes....
