COPPA-
The Children's Online Privacy Protection Act (COPPA) is a law created to protect the privacy of children under 13. The Act was passed by the U.S. Congress in 1998 and took effect in April 2000. COPPA is managed by the Federal Trade Commission (FTC).

All of my collector videos are now set to "no one under 18" age restricted. I've also put disclaimers in the descriptions, and I've never monetized my channel. I don't know if that's enough to protect me or not.

I hope it all works out, Ray. Count Stankus has just posted a video. Your channel is truly awesome and unique, not to mention your collection. 🤘🎃
