Opinion: Software Cookies – Implied Consent

Free Macro Chewy Cocolate Chip Cookies Creative Commons by Sharron PruittIs this the short and sweet answer to the whole UK cookie law debacle? AJS

A short response from author Charles Stross:

“Implied consent: if you use this blog and attempt to post comments, or are an active moderator or guest blogger, you are presumed to have given consent to the use of cookies for those purposes (and only those).

This has been a public service announcement made necessary by some damn’ fool European Commission directive that confused a goal (securing web users’ privacy) with a technology (cookies). Film at eleven.

We now return you to your usual viewing.”
