[Estimated timeframe:Q1 2018]

... new newly introduced policy pending the European Union's implementation of the GDPR [General Data Protection Regulation] on 25 May. 

The Regulation prohibits companies from using data collected by third parties like Google, prompting the latter to tell publishers they must share data they receive from consumers in order to use its software to sell ads.

If Google’s consequent use of the data is found to violate GDPR, publishers -- not Google -- will have to shoulder the consequences.

New EU Legislation Set to Affect HR Teams

Trend Summary: The EU’s General Data Protection Regulation Act [GDPR] which takes effect in May 2018 will be critical for HR Teams.  


Human Resources - specifically the departments responsible for managing resources related to company employees - will shortly be required to cope with the European Union's looming ...

[Estimated timeframe:Q1 2018]

...  General Data Protection Regulation [GDPR] which will take effect in May 2018.

It’s fair to say that legislation has failed to keep pace with the speed at which technology and big data has advanced – particularly the ability of a company to gather, store and analyse data.

GDPR is specifically intended to enhance data protection and the right of EU citizens to privacy, giving them greater control over their personal data and its use by marketers.

The new Act represents a complete overhaul of the legal requirements that must be met by any company handling EU citizens’ personal data – and that also includes employees’ personal data.

The implications of GDPR are not to be sneezed at. Companies who fall foul of the regulation and are found to be misusing personal information face stiff fines of up to €20m or 4% of annual worldwide turnover, whichever is the greater of the two.

Or at very least figure out what they should be doing differently. 

Marketers and their compliance departments are now so bogged down in the minutiae of the new regulations that they’re failing to acknowledge the bigger picture.

GDPR is just the beginning of an even larger, more structural shift in which consumers begin to grasp the inequities of the "value exchange" in which they've been unwitting participants for years. This shift will continue to have implications for marketers well after the dust from GDPR settles.

EU Supports Publishers Fight Against Google-Facebook Duopoly

Trend Summary: EU gives publishers a boost against Google-Facebook duopoly. 


 European publishers have found an ally in their struggle against the online media “duopoly” of Google and Facebook after two committees of the European Parliament voted to approve a proposed new ...

... statute making it easier for publishers to demand payment from the US duopoly for indexing and reposting even small pieces of their content.

However, the law isn’t yet final. It still has to be approved by the Parliament’s legal affairs committee, with a vote due in October 2017.

Despite Parliament's snail-like legislative progress ithe situation is causing alarm among internet freedom advocacy groups, especially as the new law would affirm publishers’ ownership and copyright protections for all content they create.

This would bar Google and Facebook from automatically “scraping” the content and distributing selected clippings to their users, either in search results or news feeds, unless publishers opted in to allow these automated functions.

Moreover, to Larry and Sergey's, consternation the proposed legislation would enable publishers to require payment for Google's right to index and share headlines and other content.

... devastating consequences.

The catalyst for this time bomb is the European Union’s new GDPR [General Data Protection Regulation], which will take effect on 25th May 218.

Under this new regulation, the rights of individuals (including customers and employees) are significantly enhanced, giving them the right to request access to their data plus details as to how it has been processed.

Watchdog Warns Brands to Beware of Hidden Online Ads

Trend Summary: The UK Advertising watchdog has declared war on undisclosed advertising in online publications and blogs.


In a bid to repair consumers’ trust in online content Britain's Competition and Markets Authority [CMA] has announced its intention to tackle undisclosed advertising in online publications and blogs, and to ramp up awareness among marketers, publishers and bloggers of ...

[Estimated timeframe:Q3 2016]

... the implications of doing so.

The announcement follows hard on the heels of the CMA's finding that Starcom Mediavest and TAN Media had arranged for endorsements in online articles and blogs without making it clear the content was advertising.

Paid endorsements aren't a new issue: the Consumer Protection from Unfair Trading Regulations 2008 has always banned the use of editorial content in publications and other media to promote products for which publishers pay without disclosing the tactic to consumer audiences.

The CMA is likely to continue to make examples of brands in order to bring about industry-wide change. Brands and marketing companies should not ignore the CMA’s actions and guidelines, but seek to understand them fully to ensure that their content marketing strategies remain effective, whilst maintaining the consumer trust which is ultimately vital to their bottom lines.

eMail Marketers Face Tighter Regulation

Trend Summary: The European Union this week agreed to implement new regulations for data sharing and protection.


In a move that will profoundly affect eMail marketers, the European Parliament this week passed the General Data Protection Regulation bill [GDPR] giving member states two years to comply with the regulation and incorporate the GDPR into their own ...

[Estimated timeframe:Q2 2015 - Q4 2018]

... national laws.

The GDPR bill, however, is not as draconian as it first may seem, allowing eMail marketers a period of grace until March 2018 to comply with the new email and data protection laws.

The new regulation will also affect anyone sending emails to or from subscribers residing in member states of the European Union.

A press release from the European Commission states that complying with the bill will likely be more difficult for marketers as it enables EU citizens to “better control their personal data”.

The release continues: “At the same time modernised and unified rules will allow businesses to make the most of the opportunities of the Digital Single Market by cutting red tape and benefiting from reinforced consumer trust.”
