Wow, that was fast!
We told you just yesterday that the Justice Department was suing Artist Arena for violating the Children's Online Privacy Protection Act.
Through its fan sites for celebs like Justin Bieber, Selena Gomez, Rihanna, and Demi Lovato, the company solicited private info from thousands of young children.
Well, it looks like Artist Arena is desperate to make these charges go away.
They've already agreed to pay a ONE MILLION dollar fine to end the legal proceedings!
In addition, the fan sites would all be reworked to require parental consent before ANY information, including phone number, birthdays, and e-mail addresses is given out.
Well, it was an expensive lesson, but at least they've learned- don't take advantage of children!
