Federal Trade Commission Settles Kids' Privacy Case with Playdom

Playdom has agreed to pay $3 million to settle charges that it violated the Children's Online Privacy Protection Act (COPPA). The virtual game company failed to obtain notice and consent from parents before the collection and use of children's information. EPIC previously testified before the Senate Commerce Committee on the need to update COPPA and to clarify the law's application to mobile and social networking services. EPIC submitted similar comments to the Federal Trade Commission. For more information, see EPIC: COPPA.
