Lieff Cabraser is investigating YouTube – the most popular online children’s programming platform – for violating children’s privacy. YouTube’s owner, Google, has for many years been collecting and using children’s personal data on YouTube without giving notice or obtaining advanced, verifiable parental consent. These privacy right violations impact tens of millions of U.S. children in the United States, and are the subject matter of an investigation by the Federal Trade Commission.
Google and YouTube’s practices with regard to children’s personal data violate the Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act (COPPA), as well as state privacy laws. Lieff Cabraser has filed similar child protection lawsuits against numerous other high-tech and online media companies seeking to to assist in protecting parents and their children from the unwanted collection and exploitation of children’s personal data and these companies’ illegal data collection and use practices.
