I am no fan of how google does business and they will get theirs one of these days. however, I do hope they and the other big ones put the GDPR in its place. the whole law seems to be written by people that have no idea how the internet works. It also seems to leave out any personal responsibility which is a common trait for liberal organizations.

Well said, Robert, well said.

There is some good news:

- The ICO has already stated a lack of inclination to go after companies that don't have a physical presence or representative in the EU. See their warning to the Washington Post.

- The ECJ shot down international enforcement of the right to be forgotten a couple of weeks ago, stating that it must only apply "within the EU" in order to "protect the freedom of speech."

The fine doesn't seem to hinder Google in its intentions to track users 'till infinity.
