®: CRE Regulatory Action of the Week

In an effort to raise awareness of children's online privacy protection, the Federal Trade Commission is seeking to identify organizations to participate in and co-sponsor a campaign designed to promote the FTC's implementation of the Children's Online Privacy Protection Act (COPPA)

On April 21, 2000 the FTC issued the Children's Online Protection Rule, thereby implementing the Children's Online Privacy Protection Act (COPPA). As stated in the FTC's notice, this ruling "prohibits unfair or deceptive acts or practices in connection with the collection, use, or disclosure of personally identifiable information from and about children on the internet." This current awareness campaign is designed to provide to the public information about the Act in particular and privacy on the internet and the law's protection in general. In an effort to strengthen the campaign the FTC is encouraging interested organizations to become involved. Thus, the FTC would like to foster the efforts of interested organizations in the development and distribution of informational materials about COPPA and the FTC's rule, by permitting such organizations to list the FTC as a co-sponsor in connection with these materials, subject to FTC staff review and approval of such materials. Interested organizations are encouraged to submit a written statement explaining their interest and qualifications to the contact listed below:

Mr. Randy Satterfield
Office of Consumer and Business Education
Bureau of Consumer Protection
600 Pennsylvania Ave. NW
Washington, DC 20580
(202) 326-3407

Though the FTC has not established a deadline yet, it encourages submissions as early as possible.
