It is indeed a world-wide web

“Tech Firms Update Privacy Protections,” The Wall Street Journal, May 8, 2018 B4.  Firms adjust their privacy policies to comply with European restrictions, even where the European restrictions don’t apply.

The US tried, with some success, to export the joys of ediscovery in litigation; Europe has successfully imposed/influenced privacy restrictions beyond their borders.

Is this just standardization for the convenience of the firms, or for the protection of their customers?  Does it matter?
