NoDPI vs. IAB opt-out guidelines
NoDPI comment here on the stand-off of perspectives on behavioural advertising. Whilst the IAB in the UK (and a variety of trade associations in the US) seek opt-out as default, legislators in Europe favour an opt-in approach. As Alexander Hanff questions: will the IAB withdraw their existing guidelines as they are not compliant with EU and UK law?
