By InfoLawGroup LLP on October 20, 2009

Remember Candie's shoes and Op shorts? The FTC announced yesterday that it has settled charges against Iconix Brand Group, an owner, licensor, and marketer of popular kids' apparel brands such as Candie's, Op, Mudd, and Bongo, for allegedly violating the Children's Online Privacy Protection Act (COPPA). Among other things, Iconix will pay a $250,000 civil penalty. The FTC filed its complaint and submitted its consent decree and order for approval yesterday in the Southern District of New York.
