The PointSmart.ClickSafe coalition (http://www.broadcastingcable.com/article/94843-NCTA_Launches_Online_Safe...) July 8 will release recommendations for online child safety best practices for Internet companies.
The guidelines are the result of a coalition, which inludes Comcast, Cox, Verizon, Yahoo!, Google, the PTA and Common Sense Media (new FCC Chairman Julius Genachowski is a founding board member of that group).They will be joined by Res. John Shimkus (R-IL) and Debbie Wasserman Schultz (D-FL) to announce the guidelines at a Capitol Hill press conference.
A task force made up of representatives of those and other groups has been working on the guidelines for over a year.
The FCC is scheduled to release a report to Congress next month about the status of various methods of giving parents more control of content across all media.
