comment What are the legal requirements for verifying a user's age? (United States)
You might have some luck looking for the rules promulgated pursuant to COPPA, I think they talk about valid ways to obtain parental consent, though they're probably for a different purpose than your current need. As always with questions like this, discuss it with your lawyer and not a bunch of yahoos on a community help site.

comment Internal and external API architecture
I think we're in agreement here. Use the security layer to restrict the superset of functionality to internal users. That way, you've got one API but multiple levels of permissions to access the API.

comment Copyright issues with encryption algorythms
Absolutely. I sometimes tend to forget that not every jurisdiction shares our insane view of what is patentable. That said, even if the originating jurisdiction does not allow patenting of algorithms, if the system is distributed in a jurisdiction that does there may be issues.
