COPPA - The Childrens Online Privacy Protection Act, is threatening our favorite YouTubers!
THIS IS FROM THE GOVERNMENT, NOT FROM YOUTUBE. IT IS A LAW MADE BY THE GOVERNMENT.
OKAY FALSE ALARM IT'S JANUARY FIRST 2020
THESE BOTS AREN'T YOUTUBE BOTS, THEY ARE GOVERNMENT GRADE BOTS.
It pretty much says:
if your videos contain the following:
-celeberties kids like
-"hip" lingo, like cool and dude
-anything else kids like or are interested in
-products consumed by kids, like cereal
YOU ARE A KIDS CHANNEL, WHICH MEANS:
-you don't appear in the recommended of youtube
-you can't collect data
-no advertising in your videos
-not even merch
-you lose like 90% of your ad revenue
-no comments section
AND YOU CAN'T PUT A DISCLAIMER IN IT. OR MOVE TO ANOTHER PLATFORM, THEY'RE ONLY STARTING WITH YOUTUBE.
IF YOU DON'T MARK YOUR CHANNEL AS A KIDS CHANNEL, AND YOU LOOK LIKE YOUR VIDEOS APPEAL TO KIDS, YOU COULD GET FINED
If you want to learn more, search it up on YouTube, or watch this video: https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=3k8Wvvvfyoc
