Comment This is for THIRD party cookies only (Score 3, Interesting) 447

If you're site is using cookies, no problem - this directive isn't going to affect you. If you're site loads third party cookies then this is what this law is addressing. There are legitimate uses for third party cookies, and your users will have no problem recognising and understanding those uses and probably consenting to the cookie. I'm guessing you're only going to be concerned if you're loading some advertising, affiliate stuff that you'd rather the user didn't know about. And check your logs - all those none IE visitors can already disable third party cookies easily in the browser preferences. If you're site, or revenue relies on using technology from the 90's then the EU is the least of your problems...
