>“The cost of YouTube’s so-called free service is kids that are addicted to online content and influenced by large tech companies that have stolen their privacy,” Cori Crider, director of Foxglove, said. “Google won’t clean up its act until it’s forced to do so by the courts.” What exactly do you want to happen, besides cutting yourselves a nice fat check? Some kind of special Google account for under-aged persons that blocks proper YouTube and only allows access to some kids version? Oh, wait, that already exists. Is Google supposed to somehow detect with 100% accuracy that the person in front of the screen is above the minimum cutoff age, even when they’re using someone else’s device? How does that make sense?
