Well we finally passed the date of the ICO amnesty. And no arrests so far. In fact the new “implied consent” interpretation makes the cookie apocalypse soothsayers look a little foolish. The UK looks good for now – but the greater European market cannot be ignored by any company based here. The recent decision for instance by Dutch legislators suggests things are going to get very hairy in the European digital advertising space.
The Dutch Are Going Hardcore On The Explicit [...]
As The US Ad Tech Giants Gravitate Towards The Complete Stack, Is It Time To Roll-Up The Euro Ad Tech Space?
Improve Digital released its updated eco-system map last week, and it is messy. Very messy. More new categories, and even more companies. You need to ask yourself if the display market (4.5 billion euro at the last count) in Europe is big enough to support all these companies. In an interesting caveat at last week’s Automated Ad Summit (encroaching on trademark there, perhaps) in Amsterdam, AppNexus CTO, Mike Nolet, presented his own version of the eco-system – the Nolet-scape [...]

Confusion Reigns Supreme As Leaked Directive Document Suggests Even More Stringent Data Protection Legislation To Come From The EU
If you were expecting some concrete guidelines from any of the myriad of European government privacy agencies, such as the ICO, on a) how not to be taken to court for contravening the new EU directive and b) how not to incur a massive fine after some privacy nut accused you of being TOO “intruisive” with those horrid cookies then I’m afraid you are going to be sorely disappointed. That’s how I felt after leaving Evidon’s conference on privacy [...]
