Let's say you're 80 and you watch a kid's video, you're deemed a kid and can only watch kid content from now on.

Also, I fear that I have a big chance of paying a fine of no less than $42,530.

Read YouTube's new policies that arose from a settlement between them and the FTC.

Okay, I did that, and I agree there are grave concerns raised by this. But the OPís statement still doesnít make sense to me.

The FTC is independent of the executive. A law would have to be passed that changes COPPA.

Yeah, my understanding is that its only that kids watching a video for adults can make that video be deemed a children's video for advertising preferences purposes, not that adults who watch kids videos are deemed kids and forbidden from watching videos for 18+ people.

Plus the fines are on content creators not passive viewers.

That is not how COPPA works.

At all.

From the end user POV, nothing changes other than that videos that are "For Kids" cannot employ any sort of tracking things, so no cookies or targeted advertising.

From the CONTENT CREATOR perspective, a ton is changing, but from the consumer POV, the main difference you'll see is that channels aimed at children will suddenly stop being profitable and, presumably shortly thereafter, will start to go the way of the dinosaur.

This will have knock-on effects on the rest of Youtube (much of the site's revenue comes from idiot 9 year olds watching the same 10 videos a hundred thousand times in a row).
