What’s ‘Hot’ in GDPR this Week

Here’s a quick Friday afternoon post on five noteworthy developments the first week after GDPR go-live:

  • Surprising no one, Google figured out a way to monetize the GDPR through compliant ads https://tinyurl.com/y9xzxrhs
  • And just as unsurprisingly, Max Schrems figured out a way to monetize Google (and others) by suing for billions under the GDPR https://tinyurl.com/yazdrbg4
  • Japan took one step closer to getting an adequacy decision, we all knew this would progress post-GDPR what’s surprising is how fast (keep an eye on the PPC rulemaking) https://tinyurl.com/JapanEUadequacy.
  • Both the US Department of Commerce and the US Chamber of Commerce are picking fights with the European Commission over GDPR’s extra-territoriality and un-intended consequences, among other things https://tinyurl.com/yb7kw8xl and https://tinyurl.com/y8vxqeg4
  • But one US Senator apparently thinks Commerce and the Chamber are getting it wrong and introduced a resolution to prove it https://tinyurl.com/y9xawr9c
