Smarts and Crafts: A Chat With's GC

Photography by Steve Hockstein

Q: How did the Consumer Protection Safety Improvement Act of 2008--which imposed many new requirements on sellers of children's products--affect Etsy sellers?

A: Well, Etsy's policies basically say that our sellers need to comply with the laws. It's really difficult when there are new laws, because I believe that Etsy sellers really want to do the right thing. I don't believe Etsy sellers want to harm children, or get in legal trouble. But some laws may harm small businesses.
