The Better Business Bureau's Children's Advertising Review Unit (CARU) leans on Oxygen.....

"Oxygen has agreed to implement age-screening measures to prevent kids from registering for activities such as chat and message boards. Additionally, Oxygen said it would include a session cookie to prevent a child under the age of 13 from immediately re-registering as one over the cut off age.

The network ... said it would also age screen for all its kids-targeted newsletters." article here [atnewyork.com]
