GDPR, the EU's new data protection law, shakes up the Internet in Europe (and the U.S. for those companies doing business with Europe)

May 25, 2018View for printing

Since the European Union's General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) went into effect on Friday, internet users in the bloc have had to deal with unforeseen consequences, including U.S. newspapers blocking access and some companies suspending support for their products.

The Los Angeles Times, Chicago Tribune and Orlando Sentinel -- all newspapers owned by Tronc media company - displayed messages saying their websites are "currently unavailable in most European countries."

"We are engaged on the issue and committed to looking at options that support our full range of digital offerings to the EU market," said the Los Angeles Times on its website.
