The work of the FTC to protect the privacy of children on the Internet is worthwhile and necessary. However, the Rule under discussion to effectively revise COPPA must be undertaken carefully so it makes real progress in protecting children without providing unnecessary and unintended burdens on some Internet operators and technology developers who were never meant to be affected by the Rule. At the present the best policy for the FTC may be to delay implementation of the Rule as currently proposed until the Rule can be revised in a way that it satisfies its original intent without the unintended negative consequences.
