Digital Media Lawyer Blog:  “The FTC’s recent settlement against soft goods marketer Iconix Brand Group, Inc. shows the hazards of trying to skirt the hassles of compliance with the Childrens’ Online Privacy Protection Act (COPPA).  15 U.S.C. §§ 6501-6506.  If your website privacy policy disclaims an intent to collect information from kids and asks kids not to submit personal information on your site, but you have reason to know that these policies are being ignored, you may actually set yourself up for double penalties — for failure to comply with COPPA and for engaging in deceptive acts.”
