YouTube to Pay $170M Fine After Violating Children's Privacy Law

Google has agreed to pay a record fine over alleged violations of children's privacy.

The Federal Trade Commission and Google have agreed to a $170 million settlement over allegations against YouTube, Google's website, for collecting kids' private data.

The Children's Online Privacy Protection Act requires giving "notice to parents and obtain their verifiable consent before collecting their children's personal information online.

Chris Lewis, the president, and CEO of Public Knowledge, an organization which promotes freedom of expression, an open internet, and access to affordable communications tools and creative works, appeared on Wednesday's edition of CBN News' Faith Nation to discuss Google's penalty.
