Unintended Consequences of COPPA

Parry Aftab notes that when COPPA first became effective, a lot of children’s websites simply went away — assumingly because the owners could not manage or understand the COPPA requirements. And, for those that remain:

While the sites want to do the right thing, they are often adopting “do it yourself” methods that violate the law or put kids at risk unintentionally. Best practice standards for the kids Internet industry are new and require professional guidance.

How do you measure the cost of compliance?  Should those costs be transparent when policies are created?
