"The biscuit law requires net-sites to gain consent from visitors to store or receive any information on a computer or any other web connected devices (e.g. clever-'phone or tablet). The biscuit law has been designed to protect online privacy of customers by making them aware, and giving them a choice, about the amount of information collected by net-sites. Each European Union member has its own approach to the law; however the basic requirements of the directive remain the same."

One step back for the "bastards of commerce" what.

Excellent news  :)

If you are reasonably computer-savvy you can set decent browsers to alert you if a site attempts to set a cookie on your computer - and accept or not.

But for the majority of users who can't be bothered or don't know how, this is a victory.

Just this week I was pleased to find that the UK Trading Standards Officers are going to take action against a persistent spammer who has been invading my inbox with adverts for kitchen products for the last two months - constantly changing IP and domain in order to do so. By somewhat devious means I managed to find a street address and telephone number for the offenders. These bastards need to be stopped.
