We look at the UK government's plans to curb harmful online content, and at the near final EC consumer protection laws which will introduce GDPR-level fines for non-compliance.

The government has published its White Paper on online harms, proposing a statutory duty of care for online operators, and an independent regulator with power to order blocking of infringing sites.

GDPR-level fines for breach of EU consumer protection law close to introduction

The EU's Consumer Enforcement and Modernisation Directive has reached the final stage of the legislative process. It will overhaul four consumer protection Directives, introduce new information requirements on online traders, and a new penalty regime with fines of up to 4% of turnover in relevant Member States for non-compliance.
