Sen. Ed Markey (D-Mass.) and Rep. Joe Barton (R-Tex.) aren't giving up on passing legislation to extend online and mobile privacy protections to teens 13 to 15. On Thursday, the privacy duo, along with Sen. Mark Kirk (R-Ill.) and Rep. Bobby Rush (D-Ill.), re-introduced the Do Not Track Kids Act.

The bill would extend many of the digital privacy protections in the Children's Online Privacy Protection Act (Coppa) that already covers children 12 and under to teens 13 to 15 by prohibiting Internet companies from collecting personal and location information without consent.
