From EPIC.org:

EPIC President Marc Rotenberg testified today before the Senate Commerce Committee. He said that “COPPA did not anticipate the immersive online experience that a social network service would provide or the extensive data collection of both the trivial and the intimate information that children would share with friends.” Mr. Rotenberg also pointed to the FTC’s failure to enforce children’s privacy rights despite clear-cut violations of the fedral law. EPIC recommended updates that would expand COPPA protections to teens and clarify the law’s application to mobile and social network services. EPIC’S press release can be found here.
