Dear Chairwoman Ramirez:

Consumer, privacy, and children’s advocates strongly oppose delaying the effective date of the revised Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act (COPPA) Rule as recently urged by two trade associations. Delay in implementing these already overdue reforms is unwarranted, would be harmful to children, and would undermine the goals of both Congress and the FTC.
