Publishers rebuke Google's interpretation of EU privacy law | Reuters
Google is the biggest vendor of the software and services that many newspapers and digital media firms use to sell ads on their websites and mobile apps.

As part of its plans for GDPR, Google would offload to publishers the burden of getting user consent for the data collection that is at the core of how Google’s ad-serving business operates.

The company has also irked publishers by saying that rather than being a “processor” of data as defined by GDPR, it wants to be a “controller,” giving it more ability to use information such as reader data for its own purposes.

Block chain: Is the GDPR out of date already? | Data Protection Blog | Kingsley Napley
A key feature of the majority of block chains is their immutability. Once a block has been verified and added to the chain, it may not be removed, edited or updated. Whilst in the vast majority of cases the data is protected by encryption and pseudonymisation, it is easy to envisage a situation in which an individual may want their data removed. With the majority of public block chain platforms, such a request would not be possible.
