Now, however, the law has been significantly expanded.
The Shape Of Things To Come. California isn’t stopping there. Beginning on January 1, 2015, all web sites that direct services to minors, or have actual knowledge that minors are using their sites, must provide a “delete” button to permit minors to remove all of their online content (together with clear instructions for doing so). The law will also prohibit Internet marketing of a wide variety of products and services to minors, including aerosol paint (apparently to inhibit graffiti), etching creams, BB guns, and tanning services. Unlike the COPPA, which is directed to persons under the age of 13, the California law applies to all persons under the age of 18.
