Meta is considering a move to cookie-paywall some listeners may know (and already hate) from German newspaper websites. As the legal basis for Meta’s personalised ads (the company’s main money-maker) is being pushed towards consent from all fronts, Meta is considering desperate means.

In other news, Pilvi and Milla discuss Irish Data Protection Commission’s 345 MEUR fine to TikTok. We also discuss once more the Grindr case from Norway, where the appeals board upheld the earlier fine. We also cover UK Information Commissioner’s preliminary enforcement notice against Snap, BBC blocking ChatGPT from using its content and lots more.
