GDPR Confusion Continues

Ramifications of GDPR continue to play out. Several U.S. publishers have blocked access to their sites from within the EU. Washington Post has given visitors a forced choice between free access with data sharing and paid access without. It’s not clear this is permitted under GDPR but we’ll soon find out. We also have a separate story that German publisher Axel Springer has released a free, open source consent management tool, providing a publisher-friendly alternative to the one from Google.
