And it isn't. It has a uniform global effect. Namely, the cookie popups are pretty much global. Another reaction from many American websites is to just block European visitors. The cookie popups and visitor-blocks are global effects of GDPR, but definitely not good effects.But if you are not experiencing cookie popups globally, then again we have a difference...The technically legal in some circumstances cookie popups already existed prior to GDPR. The ePR was supposed to come into effect at the same time as GDPR in 2018, but is largely separate except for where the handling of personal data part overlaps.There is indeed a failure of sorts there being fueled largely by France if I'm not mistaken.Quote from: ersi on 2022-07-03, 10:59:06Overall, the video is from an EU-positive British perspective. Brits and Western Europeans have in common a denial of their colonial attitude.I'm not sure if it's helpful to analyze certain types of at best unhelpful protectionism as colonialism, but yes, it's unfortunately all too present in recent years.
