In this amicus brief, the FTC argues that the Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act (COPPA) does not preempt state laws that are consistent with COPPA’s treatment of regulated activities.  The underlying case is brought by a group of children against Google for collecting data and surreptitiously tracking children in violation of various state laws. The Ninth Circuit asked for the FTC’s views on the COPPA preemption issue.
