EUROPA - Press Releases - Digital Agenda: social networks can do much more to protect minors' privacy - Commission report | Youth, internet and regulation | Scoop.it

Social networks can do much more to protect minors' privacy - Neelie Kroes, Vice President of the European Commission for the Digital Agenda said: “Young people enjoy and derive great benefits from social networking online but are often not conscious enough of risks such as grooming. Social networking sites need to take seriously their responsibilities towards these youngsters. I intend to address these issues later this year in a comprehensive strategy on making the internet a safer place for children through a combination of protective and empowerment measures."

FTC Seeks Comment on Proposed Revisions to Children’s Online Privacy Protection Rule Changes in Technology Drive Proposed Updates

The Federal Trade Commission is seeking public comment on proposed amendments to the Children’s Online Privacy Protection Rule, which gives parents control over what personal information websites may collect from children under 13. The FTC proposes these amendments to ensure that the Rule continues to protect children’s privacy, as mandated by Congress, as online technologies evolve. The Commission proposes modifications to the Rule in five areas: definitions, including the definitions of “personal information” and “collection,” parental notice, parental consent mechanisms, confidentiality and security of children’s personal information, and the role of self-regulatory “safe harbor” programs.

Online Sex Predators Arrested, Keeping Your Child From Becoming Sex Site Material

Online Sex Predators Arrested, Keeping Your Child From Becoming Sex Site Material | Youth, internet and regulation | Scoop.it

There are rings of men on the internet who are taking images from minors and posting them up on online bulletin boards like the one mentioned on the DOJ’s site. When our daughters (and, even sons) send partial or fully nude photos or act out in front of web cameras, those things often wind up on the ‘net and once they’re out there it is very difficult to pull them back in. Almost impossible really. Youths as young as 6th grade have told us they have sent sexts and, in one case, performed in front of a webcam.

CA Senate Bill 919 makes “sexting” an offense which carries the penalty of suspension from school, or expulsion, statewide. Though the bill has been passed by the California State Senate, it still needs to be approved in the Assembly and must be signed into law by Gov. Brown. At first glance, there are a couple issues with the bill"

The Child Pornography Crusade and its Net Widening Effect by Melissa Hamilton :: SSRN

The Child Pornography Crusade and its Net Widening Effect by Melissa Hamilton :: SSRN | Youth, internet and regulation | Scoop.it
This article challenges the presumption by comprehensively analyzing certain of the most commonly cited studies that purport to empirically support correlations between child pornography, pedophilia, and child molestation. It also highlights other empirical evidence, as well as some practical considerations, that instead tend to show that most child pornography offenders are at low risk of committing contact sexual offenses. In sum, the concentration on child pornography crimes appears to be a misinformed policy that fails to directly protect real children from harm.

danah boyd | apophenia » How Teens Understand Privacy | Youth, internet and regulation | Scoop.it

In the fall, Alice Marwick and I went into the field to understand teens’ privacy attitudes and practices. We’ve blogged some of our thinking since then but we’re currently working on turning our thinking into a full-length article. We are lucky enough to be able to workshop our ideas at an upcoming scholarly meeting (PLSC), but we also wanted to share our work-in-progress with the public since we both know that there are all sorts of folks out there who have a lot of knowledge about this domain but with whom we don’t have the privilege of regularly interacting.

California SB 1411 And Cyberbullying

California SB 1411 And Cyberbullying | Youth, internet and regulation | Scoop.it

January 1st, California Senate Bill 1411 went into effect after being signed into law last September by Governor Schwarzenegger. This is actually a very important bill which I believe will fill a very important gap in California’s current handling of cyberbullying attacks where the perpetrator hacks into someone’s social media or email account and then poses as the victim posting malicious updates or sending out malicious emails.
