CBS This Morning: Parents Concerned Internet-connected Toys Put Kids’ Privacy at RiskDecember 26, 2018
In its December 22 broadcast, CBS This Morning reported on growing concerns that some of the high-tech gadgets that may be given as presents this holiday season can put children’s privacy at risk through data collection, tracking, monitoring, and recording.
O’Melveny special counsel Scott Pink, a former general counsel for a major media company who focuses on privacy and cybersecurity law, was consulted for the report.
“Smart toys can be a lot of fun for families, but parents must be smarter than the toys,” says Pink, who also discusses the topic in the Law360 article “Smart Toys Under The Tree Raise Privacy Concerns.”
