Learn more about COPPA Below, but please if you’ve ever thought about becoming a Patron, please start today because it might be the ONLY thing that saves my content and my music in 2020. If the FTC and their 42,000 dollars a video fine come my way. 10 Factor analysis Based Test CHILD-DIRECTED CONTENT Determining Factors:

Subject Matter
Visual Content
Use of animated characters
Music/Audio content *** This is where I’m worried of what FTC might think.
Age of Models
Presence of Child Celebrities
Celebrities who appeal to children
Advertising directed to children
Audience composition – My audience is almost entirely 18-65+ as far as my analytics show.

I personally don’t create and intend my content for children but, I make positive, inspiring content and hope and pray I can continue doing so, but I am very worried about what 2020 will bring. I hope and pray that the mixed audience exception (16 CFR S 312.2) will find that my content since it’s made for adults will continue to be able to be distributed on my channels in 2020. I know creators that are going to make much less content in 2020 because they are scared of the regulations and fines (UP TO $42,000!!!) I’ve seen some people delete their entire channels and some are taking their content behind paywalls…. none of these choices make any sense to me. I know some creators will lose their monetization entirely… some will make about 10% of what they are making in 2019.

Because youtube is the most popular platform for children ages 6-12 the FTC has come down hard on youtube, and that it will soon surpass television as the most-watched video formation in the United States …. which is why all of this is happening.
