  1. IS YOUTUBE IS GONNA END BECAUSE COPPA? I HOPE THIS IS CHANGE TO SAVE YOUTUBE.

      Calm down a bit. No, it's not gonna end Youtube and no, it's  not designed to save Youtube. COPPA is an old law getting enforced these days because Youtube has personalized ads thanks to the big G (Google) owning it. COPPA is more designed to protect children.

      The agreement settled on a crapton of money, Youtube having creators identify if their videos is designed to appeal to children or not, and those abusing the system to be charged well over 40,000 per video.

      Now, that latter part is scary to a lot of people, after all, Sonic, for instance, can appeal to children (but it seems to appeal more to young adults, if my analytics are anything to go by) so a lot of people are also freaking out about that.

      Truth is, it would be impractical for the government to start charging video makers fees by the thousands. It'd land them in court over and over and over and over again. It'd piss off a loooooot of people (especially if big personalities are hit) and can easily cost Senators that voted for the FTC Chairman, Simons, their seats.

      Honestly, worse that's likely to happen is the child-friendly channels are likely to go under since they can no longer make much off of ad revenue. Unless Google can come up with a way to save them (or care to do so.)

      Even though I'm somewhat worried about the ramifications of this, I will be immensely pleased if those awful and honestly kind of creepy "kid-friendly" channels disappear from the face of the earth.
