CA Bill Gives Minors Greater Online Privacy

On Monday, Governor Brown signed into law a children’s online privacy bill,  SB-568 Privacy: Internet: Minors .  The law “compels online companies and app developers to give minors (defined as anyone younger than 18 years old) the ability to remove any of their online content. The law also says that it's acceptable for a website to allow minor users the ability to file a request for content deletion.”  It  becomes effective as of January 1, 2015.
