Robert C. Fellmeth

San Diego (July 7, 2018) - University of San Diego School of Law Children’s Advocacy Institute (CAI) and Center for Public Interest Law’s (CPIL) Executive Director Robert C Fellmeth, the original Nader’s Raider, appeared on Ralph Nader’s Radio Hour on Saturday to discuss the campaign to protect children on Facebook.

Fellmeth stated, “The problem is a term and condition in the Facebook agreement, which of course nobody ever reads. It applies to teen subscribers, who theoretically cannot have contracts held against them. But theoretically, by subscribing… they have consented to the capture of anything in a post, whether it be a photograph, a comment or whatever, and it’s re-transmission to anybody by Facebook for any purpose whatsoever.”

Fellmeth recently contributed an op-ed to the Washington DC newspaper, The Hill, entitled “Millions of Strangers Can See Facebook Posts By and About Your Kids.”
