New EU Cookie Law. It doesn’t have to be a pain!

New EU Cookie LawOK so there is a big stink about the impending doom that is the New EU Cookie Law.
But the bottom line is this – it is the law! And if we flaunt it we may pay the price.

There are still developers and website owners who do not know about the New EU Cookie Law. Some are in denial and some think they are immune.

Don’t take my word for it:

Matt Warman of The Telegraph said:
EU cookie law ‘will cost businesses £10billion’ New regulations on internet cookies which come into force on 26 May will cost UK businesses £10billion, researchers have claimed.

John Naughton of the Observer said:
EU cookie laws could cause unwary firms to get their fingers burnt. Cookies are a key component of web technology, but anyone using them must beware new EU rules on consent

My colleague Michelle Harris and I [Mick Say] been slated on social media by many people for stirring up a stink about a toothless law? One person even said it was a scam! Many people also joined in the conversation in a very positive manner – thank you to all of those people.

I wish it was a toothless law and to be honest, I wish it would go away, but it will not.
The New EU Cookie Law is here to stay, so please don’t let the New EU Cookie Law be a pain, be prepared by reading the full low-down on the New EU Cookie Law.

Happy days….

    • Hi Kimberly

      Unfortunately its not a plug-in its js installed on the root. We’re developing a plug-in which, (hopefully) will be ready next week.

      Thanks for commenting – Mick

    That’s a rather defeatist attitude, wouldn’t you say? If enough people refuse to obey a law they disagree with it forces a change. It can be dangerous to accept ruling without question.

    • Hi Daniel

      It’s not defeatist at all Daniel – it’s reality. The way to change the law is first to abide by it and then to lobby against it.

      Thank you for your comment – have a great weekend
