Jackson Redstar Posted November 26, 2019 Share Posted November 26, 2019 Not sure if there is any 'official' position from Linden Labs concerning COPPA and You Tube compliance - the primary issue for us as users of SL who make vdeos for YouTube would be will the FTC view SL as "animation" and "cartoon" content regardless of its intended audience? For those that are not aware, all YouTube creators must mark all content on their Chanel 'made for kids; or 'not made for kids' and starting in January 2020 the FTC will start sweeping all YouTube channels looking for compliance. That is, uninformed human moderators looking at content to determine if it is geared towards kids. A violation can cost the content creator up to 42.000 per video - regardless of the fact the channel is monetized, the youtube analytics showing the average oge of the viewers = if the FTC determines the content is 'geared for kids' you will be in violation. For instance alot of us in SL make cutesy videos with our little prim babies or even child avatars that are our "children" or other videos with "children" in them , I for instance have some wedding videos that also have 'children' as flower girls or ring bearers and while of course a wedding video is directed to adults - how the FTC overlords will see this is unknown Marking a channel or a individual video 'made for kids' means the video wont be searchable, comments are disabled, can't be added to playlists or favorites, and won't be counted in any youtube indexing So I was wondering if Linden has any guidance on how the FTC might view Second Life (and by extension, Sansar) as a whole. I have actually written a comment to the FTC to ask for the FTCs view but i expect at most a generic answer Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
