Epic Games Fortnite Fine: It settles with FTC for Deceptive Design and Privacy Violations Towards Children

Epic Games will pay $275 million for “violating children’s privacy law”, in addition to another payment of $245 million in refunds for “tricking users into making unwanted charges” within Fortnite‘s in-game store.

Consumers who believe they were unfairly charged for in-game purchases can go to a website set up by the FTC to request refunds. It is likely to take several months or longer to process those claims, the FTC said.

Kids & teens’ mental health & development at stake with Canadian schools adopting distance learning well

What’s at stake, if teacher unions remain opposed to synchronous learning and governments like the one in Ontario focus on the number of video sessions a teacher must hold each day, as a replacement for research-based efficient elearning techniques?

Canada to Big Tech: Pay for News you Use!  Pros and Cons of Bill C-18, the Online News Act of June 2023

Canada to Big Tech: Pay for News you Use! Pros and Cons of Bill C-18, the Online News Act of June 2023

Canadian Heritage Minister Pablo Rodriguez succeeded in passing bill C-18, aka the Online News Act this June 2023.
