"the law's real strength will be in its enforcement"
Interesting thread. Here's a slightly different take:
We shouldn't be disappointed by GDPR, when it was never designed or intended to fix all privacy problems in the first place. It was a much-needed update of laws from the 90s. An evolution, not a revolution.

Data protection is just one piece of the puzzle and GDPR is the floor, not the ceiling: Without competition - big players can impose their terms and conditions. Without sectoral privacy laws - ePrivacy etc. - things will fall through the cracks.

Also, consumer protection etc.

And finally - the law's real strength will be in its enforcement. A year is simply too early to judge how exactly the law will be enforced in areas that are contested.

OUTCOME OF THE COUNCIL MEETING 3661st Council meeting Justice and Home Affairs Brussels, 6 and 7 December 2018
PROVISIONAL VERSION 6 and 7 December 2018
15252/18 20
Mutual recognition in criminal matters
The Council adopted conclusions on mutual recognition in criminal matters (14540/18). Judicial
cooperation in criminal matters in the EU is based on the principle of mutual recognition of
judgment and judicial decisions. The efficient application of this principle is largely based on
mutual trust between judicial authorities.
The objective of these conclusions is therefore to support efforts to foster and enhance this trust. In
this respect, the conclusions reaffirm that the effectiveness of EU mutual recognition instruments is,
to a large extent, dependent on the relevant national legislation being drafted, adopted and
implemented in line with those instruments. The Council also reaffirms that member states should
continue to ensure the independence and impartiality of judges while also noting that a refusal to
execute a judgment issued on the basis of a mutual recognition instrument can only be justified in
exceptional circumstances following the approach of the Court of Justice.
The conclusions also foresee a number of practical actions to be taken to foster cooperation and
mutual trust between authorities. Those include: fostering the use of alternative measures to
detention, so as to reduce the population in detention facilities; promoting training of practitioners;
encouraging exchange of best practices; encouraging to make full use of the possibilities offered by
Eurojust and the European Judicial Network (EJN); further developing the handbook for
practitioners on the European arrest warrant and creating handbooks on other instruments; ensuring
better forms and certificates for mutual recognition procedures; etc.
These conclusions are the result of exchanges of views ministers held during the informal meeting
of Justice ministers in Innsbruck in July 2018 and during the October Council meeting

Can the law be copyrighted? | TechCrunch
UpCodes wants to fix one of the building industry’s biggest headaches by streamlining code compliance. But the Y Combinator-backed startup now faces a copyright lawsuit filed against it by the International Code Council, the nonprofit organization that develops the code used or adopted in building regulations by all 50 states.

The case may have ramifications beyond the building industry, including for compliance technology in other sectors and even individuals who want to reproduce the law. At its core are several important questions: Is it possible to copyright the law or text that carries the weight of law? Because laws and codes are often written by private individuals or groups instead of legislators, what rights do they continue to have over their work? Several relevant cases, including ones involving building codes, have been decided by different circuits in the United States Court of Appeals, which means the UpCodes lawsuit may potentially be heard by the Supreme Court.

Unfortunately, the map isn't accurate. The actual definition of the "100 mile zo... | Hacker News
Hrm, but CBP treats international airports in the center of the US as a border crossing, an frequently uses that definition to expand a 100 mile bubble around said airports. If the 100 mile rule only applies to external borders, then how are interior international airport checkpoints and the surrounding area supposed to be handled then?
