There Ought to be a Law…Protecting Children’s Privacy Rights…

November 25, 2009

There Ought to be a Law: Protecting Children’s Online Privacy in the 21st Century is an online discussion paper from the Online Children’s Privacy Working Group, which consists of Canadian federal, provincial and territorial child and youth advocates and privacy commissioners.  The discussion paper is available at the website of the New Brunswick Office of the Ombudsman / Child and Youth Advocate.

The report considers various facets of online privacy, including the commercialization of children’s online playgrounds and issues of third-party marketing, data-mining, and behavioral marketing;  child sexual exploitation through the distribution of online pornography, luring, and predation; and the prevalent uses of social network sites.
