We aren't exactly known for giving a darn about consumer rights or protections here in the US.

I haven't paid any attention to the GDPR stuff, is it any good? I'm sure whatever they implement here in the US will be a great benefit to the companies collecting and selling the data and be another nail in the coffin for an individuals right to privacy.
EU IP law? Good? No. Really not. As for America, at this point we would be better off with no form of IP protection whether patent or copyright than the system we have now.

I calculated the odds of this succeeding versus the odds I was doing something incredibly stupid... and I went ahead anyway.

If it's not coming out for the PC, it's dead to me.

GDPR = bad for hackers and good for hackees. I needed this 3 years ago.

The big companies like Google still violate it anyway and just pay out when caught, or they lawyer up and drag the thing out for ten years. That and most consumers are stupid, even with GDPR style protections they will simply click through and consent to everything for some random service cuz all their friends are on it.
