Member States Likely To Miss Cookie Deadline
PRIVACY LAW—EUMay 25, 2011
Some member states will likely miss Thursday's deadline to implement the EU's new cookie law, ClickZ reports, causing Web companies confusion about complying lawfully. To date, Denmark and Estonia are the only states to have implemented the amended EU Privacy and Communications Directive, which gives Internet users more control of their data and requires any company with EU customers to comply. Meanwhile, UK Information Commissioner Christopher Graham has said he will give companies one year to comply with the law. The UK Department for Culture, Media and Sport has published an open letter on how it expects the rules to be implemented.
