Submission + - EU cookie law is ridiculous (webanalyticsdemystified.com)

whencanistop writes: A couple of weeks ago there was some talk about the EU cookie law which has now been passed into law. Whilst the original story broke on the Out-law blog from a law perspective there has been a follow up from a couple of industry insiders. Aurelie Pols of the Web Analytics Association has blogged on how this will affect websites who want to monitor what people are looking at on their sites, whilst eConsultancy has blogged on how this will affect the affiliate industry. All of this is probably ignoring the general public who, if this is actually implemented, will have to proceed through ridiculous screens of text every time they access a website telling them that they are going to put cookies on their computers. I know most of you guys hate them, but it is vital for websites to work out how people are accessing the sites so they can work out how to improve the experience for the user.
