Where GDPR Goes Next: How Digital Privacy is Taking Over the World (ZDNet)


The extended reach of GDPR has lead to some unexpected outcomes. One example: European internet users looking to visit some US-based news publications may find that they can’t view the websites – instead being met with pages explaining the publication didn’t comply with the new legislation and blocked them out instead. Some eventually found solutions to this, while a year on some US publications continue to only show a holding page to European visitors. But beyond the flood of emails asking for your explicit consent to be marketed to, or the notices you see on websites warning of the presence of third-party cookies, there is a bigger shift taking place.
