Children’s Privacy: Is passing US’ KOSA quickly a good idea or a political football?

If 90+ US human & internet rights groups are to be believed, the end-year push to get the Kids Online Safety Act (KOSA) passed by the Senate during the current lame-duck Congress may do more harm than good. The groups sent a joint letter to lawmakers saying they believe the law’s weakly defined protections for ages 16 and under could provide opportunities for censoring information about LGBTQ+ and reproductive rights and also give parents tools to spy on their kids.
