Justin Bieber was accused of violating the privacy of the girls who visited his official site. Actually, all of his victims wouldn’t mind to hand over their personal data, especially those who believed that Justin might really know who they were. However, the privacy watchdogs were furious.
The local newspapers report that the firm involved into making official fan websites for Justin and his representatives have reached an agreement with the authorities to pay $1,000,000 in order to settle charges that they illegally collected personal details about over 100,000 kids.
The Federal Trade Commission has filed a complaint in a New York district court last week to accuse Artist Arena of violating the rights of the kids. The matter is that the company didn’t get parental consent before gathering personal data like names and email addresses of the kids. As a result, Artist Arena had to agree to settle for $1,000,000, but this settlement still must be approved by a judge. The company admitted that it improperly gathered data from more than 100,000 kids aged under 12. In the meantime, according to the Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act, the online portals are required to give special treatment to the kids aged 12 or younger – at least, they have to get parental permission to collect any personal data about the kids.
The Federal Trade Commission is currently in the process of updating the rules to enforce stricter requirements for the companies and official websites which target kids and youth. In the meanwhile, Artist Arena provided no comments about the deal, and Justin Bieber is saying that he has a relationship with Jesus, and he is talking to him and that’s why he is here. Actually, for most people that’s just another reason to hate the organized religion.

|If music be the food of love then this sad wanker is a sweaty 4 week old kebab. More proof that the popular music industry is just that, and industry churning out pap on a daily basis. Music without meaning, songs without substance and another tone deaf talentless noise polluting waste of space cons kids out of pocket money.|
|Another way for corporate monopolies to share your details with there whole wide world and then getting spam from call centers..... they go on about file sharing but surely sharing someone's personal details is worse than file sharing... at least with file sharing you cannot get spam from "microsoft" and "fashion int." both fake peeps swindling people out of hard earned cash. Oh and some of the best music is indie or contemporary like music from fallout or from the kill bill soundtracks, now that is proper music. (p.s gangnam style best to date )|
|What does that last bit about religion have to do with anything?|
|Justin Bieber loves Jesus so much... this song is about Bieber and his relationship with Jesus|
|What a lot of rubbish.|
The parents of these "under-12's" should not be letting the children fill in their info on the site.
Ooooops that would mean the parents would have to actually keep control of their children, silly me, thats never going to happen.
|But I do agree with the "just hang him" comment, would be much easier|
|It's the girls problem for giving their info to a douche's site|
