Sony BMG will pay $1 million to the Federal Trade Commission to settle charges that it violated the Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act (COPPA) by collecting information on users under the age of 13 without their parents’ consent. The FTC says that the civil penalty will match the largest penalty ever paid out in a COPPA case.
