⚖️ New law targets children’s YouTubers

CREATOR ECONOMY NEWSLETTER


An appeals court in California is allowing a class action lawsuit to continue against Google and YouTube, as well as several kids and family creators that operate YouTube channels—including Ryan’s World, a kidfluencer channel formerly known as Ryan’s ToysReview, and CookieSwirlC, an independent VTuber with 19 million subscribers.

This under-reported case potentially expands legal exposure and liability for creators of children’s content, despite Google and YouTube arguably being responsible for user tracking and data gathering of audiences. 

In a piece for Passionfruit, technology lawyer Franklin Graves breaks down this latest development, explaining the history behind creators being held accountable for the collection of children’s data and what creators can do to protect themselves against liability.
