CNN News:YouTube非法搜集儿童隐私 美国判罚谷歌1.7亿美元

Up next, $170 million — that's what the technology company Google has agreed to pay to settle a lawsuit involving its YouTube video sharing website. Google owns YouTube and the website was accused of collecting user information from kids in order to get more advertising revenue.
Here's the problem with that — it's against the law in the United States for companies to use or share the personal data of kids under age 13 without their parents' permission. The government says Google and YouTube intentionally broke that law by tracking and providing specific ads to young children.

The fine that Google's agreed to pay is the highest penalty ever paid for breaking that law. Google says it's committed to giving children and families the best possible experience on YouTube and that it plans to limit its data collection on videos made for kids, limit the features available on kids' videos and stop serving personalized ads on kids' videos. Critics say the settlement isn't as effective as it should be in making sure YouTube will enforce its rules. And that even though the fine is a record, it's still less than 1 percent of what Google makes in advertising every quarter. A U.S. government representative says the settlement could still encourage businesses to make sure they follow the law.
