The cookie law is "doomed to die"

Earlier this year, .net reported on the EU cookie law and the UK’s interpretation of it, along with a protest site created by Silktide, aiming to reverse the legislation. Since that time, various arguments have erupted online regarding what people have to do in order to make their sites compliant, something further confused by the Information Commissioner's Office (ICO) doing something of a U-turn at the eleventh hour.

Silktide MD Oliver Emberton has now released a new video about the cookie law, entitled 28 Days Later, reporting on the shambles. He told .net: “Enough time has passed since the law came into effect to draw some conclusions, so we decided to measure what real sites were doing. The results were so shocking we had to share.”
