Bohemia NY– On October 20, 2012, fishbat Splash host, COO Scott Darrohn, responded to a recent article Beta Beat detailing federal regulations on Internet content for minors. The issue was rekindled after photos of children were uploaded online and made publicly available on the McDonald’s webpage as part of the fast food restaurant chain’s advertising strategy, the article reports.
During a recent webisode of fishbat Splash, Darrohn stated that the federal government was “poised to become more involved with children’s websites.” Darrohn openly admits that fishbat does not condone government regulation on the Internet but heavily encourages keeping children safe while utilizing the Internet. “This is a great step in the right direction. [Though] we do not approve of government control of information, we would like to see minors protected a little more diligently than they currently are.”
Federal regulations indicate a more proactive approach from parental supervision according to Darrohn. Darrohn stated that “[fishbat] would like the parents to get more involved” with any and all content regulation on the Internet. Darrohn concludes fishbat Splash with a reminder to parents that they should be aware of what their children are doing online in order to keep them safe.
