Thomson Reuters Sues ROSS Intelligence Claiming Theft Of Proprietary Data

In what could be a Goliath v. David legal battle, legal research giant Thomson Reuters has filed a lawsuit against legal research startup ROSS Intelligence alleging that it surreptitiously stole content from Westlaw to build its own competing legal research product.

No Cookie Consent Walls — and No, Scrolling Isn’t Consent, Says EU Data Protection Body

You can’t make access to your website’s content dependent on a visitor agreeing that you can process their data — aka a ‘consent cookie wall.’ Not if you need to be compliant with European data protection law. From a report: That’s the unambiguous message from the European Data Protection Board (EDPB), which has published updated guidelines on the rules around online consent to process people’s data. Under pan-EU law, consent is one of six lawful bases that data controllers can use when processing people’s personal data. But in order for consent to be legally valid under Europe’s General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) there are specific standards to meet: It must be clear and informed, specific and freely given.
